Broadcast on the 'Me And My Shadows' shows during early 1962, this abridged recording of the 'The Young Ones' film track is only of poor/fair quality with too much bass. Cliff had also performed it on BBC Radio's 'Saturday Club' on 31 March 1962 and on 'Easy Beat' on 15 April 1962.
The song was officially recorded at Abbey Road Studios on 28 July/14 August 1961 and released as the B-side to the Young Ones single in January 1962.
A television performance of this track survives from the Cliff and Shadows live concert recorded in Liège by the Belgium television station RTBF on 8 May 1964.
MC: one of Cliff's best uptempo 60s recordings, boasting a superb Marvin solo. There is a cracking Kingston version now available. The poorly preserved RL version was clearly spirited enough when it hit the airwaves all those moons ago. The fade comes with the solo, though little or nothing of that can be discerned amid all the noise; in fact, it sounds as if no formal solo was attempted, with the group easing themselves out of the number without too much attention to fine detail.
