Billy Kennedy - If I Was A Kid (Silver)

Recommended Posts

Always quite liked this one.

 

Billy Kennedy - If I Was A Kid (Silver)

 

Where was it played?

 

Is it ever played now - and if not, what would happen if it was?

 

Presume the Betty Wright version was a cover - seeing as B. Kennedy was one of the song writers?

 

Cheers

 

Richard

Hi Richard, it also had a brief spell in the spotlight at the 70s Nottingham Palais all-dayers. It's hard to generalise from local knowledge but I seem to recall as it was getting to be an established expected play within that venue there was a glut of them came into local shops, so much so that for many years I thought mine must have been a boot, on the assumption that any played out sound that appeared in the shops was a boot! (I was very young!). I think its sudden availability led to it being dropped from spots. Very much a theme of the mid 70s, big tune breaks, booted, dropped. Although I was wrong about the boot presumption on this occasion.

Think I also have it on a tape from St Ives around 76 / 77, but my date recollection is quite poor. Will have to have a look at the tape.
