This lively rousing party-themed vocal number appears to have featured in Cliff and The Shadows live shows during early 1962: a performance by the group without Cliff was recorded by Columbia EMI during a live show at the ABC Kingston, Surrey on 7 March 1962. Taped as a proposed new live album for release later that year, the project was shelved for reasons unknown and remained in the archives for 40 years, belatedly finding release in 2002.
Cliff joins The Shadows belting out the lead vocals in unison for this Luxembourg radio performance (which unfortunately is only of very poor quality)
MC: As a matter of fact Cliff and the group, according to Lewry/Goodall (CR Complete Recording Sessions p. 49), taped a version at Abbey Road on 10 May 1962, but this has never seen the light of day. The number had been around since mid-1961, so there is no sure way of knowing when this congested sounding RL version was recorded/transmitted in 1961 or 1962.
