"LET ME  BE THERE" er utgitt med New Jordal Swingers i et sceneopptak fra Oslo Konserthus i 1983. Opptaket ble utgitt på samlingen "NJS - LIVE!", og Eigil Berg deler her vokalen med Trond Granlund, som var blant gjesteartistene på NJS’ Julekonsert det året.

"LET ME BE THERE" ble skrevet av John Rostill, kjent som en av de mest profilerte bassistene i The Shadows på 60-tallet. Olivia Newton-John fikk en hit med den i 1973, og Elvis innlemmet den i sitt live-repertoar i 1974 på albumet "Live On Stage In Memphis".

Let Me Be There

(John Rostill)

Wherever you go

And wherever you may wander in your life

Surely you know

That I always wanna be there

Holding your hand

And standing by to catch you when you fall

Seeing you through

In everything you do



I said let me be there in your morning

Let me be there in you night

Let me change whatever's wrong and make it right

Let me take you through that wonderland

That only two can share

All I ask you is let me be there



Watching you grow

And going through the changes in your life

That's how I know

I always wanna be there

Whenever you feel you need a friend to lean on, here I am

Whenever you call, you know I'll be there
 


I said let me be there in your morning

Let me be there in your night

Let me change whatever is wrong and make it right

Let me take you through that wonderland

That only two can share

All I ask you is let me be there
