I Don’t Believe in Miracles

Song written by Russ Ballard. It was originally recorded by Colin Blunstone on his 1972 album Ennismore. It was released as the first single from that album in October 1972. The song was produced by Rod Argent and Chris White, with whom Blunstone worked in the band the Zombies previously. Russ Ballard was a member of Rod Argent’s new band Argent. That band was also responsible for the music on this recording. The single reached number 31 in the UK singles chart.

Kim Wilde recorded a version of the song, although it was never released. In an interview with Record Collector in 2005 she said: “There’s always something unreleased in the archive, including a cover of Colin Blunstone’s ‘I Don’t Believe in Miracles’, and a whole album that never saw the light of day.”
