It was first played by Steve Smith 86ish, maybe 87? Rob Marriott borrowed if off Steve and that was the last Steve saw of it :lol: Took some time to go massive but eventually it got there. Sure Steve will tell the full story once he reads this.

It was hammered well before the 90's. I remember Rob playing it three times at 100 club one night, probably 1987, he said I'm gonna play this till you dance :lol: he then continued to hammer it through the late 80's and 90's.

What a mega tune.

first played out Dave Goldswains birthday party the night Arenal won the league at Liverpool exact date!!! John Buck even taped it (and got a cut of it)

Then i played it at Leicester Holy Cross-Failed miserably,

Roundabout Gloucester(early doors) Hard work -a little interest

Coventry all nighter(again early) only real interest-Chris Ashby always good taste

Then one night i took it to Trotters in Mansfield and right at the begining played it to Rob Marriott who was doing the 100 club the next night................Never got it back :( he did give me three hundred quid i think

I bought it as an unknown of John Manship (70 quid i think) i happened to be doing some work at his place and he just had a box(fu++ng big box) of stuff arrived from the states, at the same time i came away with Harry Deal (covered as Bobby Paris by me- later recovered as Johnny Dixon by Gary Spencer) Phonetics-just a boys dream, Little Wooden Soldier-The Little Wooden Soldiers and another thing on Cobra that i can´t for the life of me recall but i know i sold it to Ady from Hinkley

Boring and strange little details we remember??.........Another point John hadn´t even recorded it for his then famous tape base!!

Steve

Didn´t Richard Domar find a few of these later?

Spot on, as I recall there were quite a few of these about at the time, I bought mine off Tim Brown who like most of the main dealers had a few and as you say they did sell for around the £70 mark at the time. Had a reasonable offer for mine and sold it in the early 90's, still sounds good.

i think the group has male/ female members anyway and the lead vocal appears to be male ( might not be the case)....but if anyone now has a problem with this 45 i`ll take it off your hands :D

I had to shell out £50 for this escorts c/p in the early 90s, don't play it out much since NMD days, if it dosn't get played in the freebase room at Mo-Ho i might just give it a spin :wicked:
