This track from the The Bunch’s Rock On recording sessions at The Manor, Oxfordshire in January 1972 was finally included in the album’s 2003 CD reissue. The Bunch was an ad hoc collection of “Fairport family” members who gathered together to record this collection of rock’n’roll songs. Apparently the reason behind the recording was to test the newly-opened Manor Studios.
