The ‘other four lads from Liverpool’ tell their story from the tough streets of Toxteth to the bright lights of New York, and international stardom. Against a backdrop of racism and social and
political turmoil, The Real Thing were the first all-black British band to hit #1 in the pop charts with ‘You To Me Are Everything’.

For the first time Eddy, Chris and Dave tell their incredible story of a 45-year-long career. After five decades, they remain the true pioneers of British soul.
