Let Your Love Flow

First released by Gene Cotton (1975).
Hit version by The Bellamy Brothers (US #1/MOR #2/C&W #21/CAN #3/UK #7/GER #1/SWE #2 1976).

From the wiki: “‘Let Your Love Flow’ was written by Larry E. Williams, a former roadie for Neil Diamond and was first offered by Williams to Diamond who turned it down. Johnny Rivers also passed on the song. An early recording was attempted by producer Phil Gernhard, who often used Diamond’s road band as session musicians, with David Bellamy singing but the result was disappointing and the session was shelved. Pop-folk and Christian singer Gene Cotton would wind up being the first performer to release ‘Let Your Love Flow’, in October 1975, as the lead promotional single from Cotton’s album For All the Young Writers, but it failed to chart.
