Robson Green released his first solo album, a CD collection of classic love songs entitled Moment In Time, on 2 December 2002. The album includes new versions of popular tracks including Everlasting Love, Without You, I Don’t Want to Talk About It, Fool If You Think It’s Over, The Wonder of You and Smoke Gets in Your Eyes.
Released by T2, a division of Telstar Records, the CD is produced by Nigel Wright, one of the UK’s top record producers who has worked with Madonna, Westlife, Cliff Richard and Barbara Streisand.
The solo recording echoed the success of Robson’s two previous best-selling albums, recorded with his Soldier Soldier co-star Jerome Flynn, which sold more than 6 million copies.
Said Robson: “My new album is a collection of high quality love songs, all of which are instantly recognisable classics. They are unashamedly moving cover versions of tracks which we hope will bring back memories.”
The album release came as Robson starred in Wire in the Blood with Hermione Norris. Other new TV projects at the time includes Me & Mrs Jones and Unconditional Love for ITV1 and Trust for BBC1.
Robson added: “Acting has always been my first love, but I couldn’t turn down the chance to release another album. I love performing these classic songs and I hope other people enjoy listening to them too.”
The release of Moment in Time was backed up by a national TV advertising campaign. Record label T2 was enjoying worldwide success at the time with Craig David, BBMak and Mis-teeq.

Robson has joined the growing all-star line-up taking part in an ambitious North music project.
As we mentioned last month, Robson has contributed a version of Keep Your Feet Still Geordie Hinny to the Northumbria Anthology, a collection of over 300 tracks representing the regions musical heritage. He said: “I chose this song as it’s one of the famous Geordie anthems. As well as having funny lyrics, it paints quite a picture of 19th-century life on Tyneside.
“Although songs like this are still well known, many others were in danger of being lost forever. The Northumbria Anthology will make sure that our North East musical heritage will be preserved for future generations.”
The full 20-CD boxed set will be on sale in record shops soon, with about 500 copies being distributed free of charge to libraries throughout the North East. Two sample albums giving a taste of the music were released on Tuesday with music stars Sting, Dave Stewart, Bryan Ferry, Thomas Allen, Brian Johnson, Sheila Armstrong and Lindisfarne among contributors.
