“Red Red Wine” is a song originally written and recorded by Neil Diamond that was then covered by Tony Tribe and more famously by UB40.
UB40 made their rendition for their cover versions album Labour of Love. According to the band, they were only familiar with Tony Tribe’s version, and their version featured a lighter, reggae-style flavor compared to Diamond’s somber, acoustic ballad.
