Like all songs from the LP Rock On, this track was recorded at The Manor, Oxfordshire in January 1972 and produced by Trevor Lucas. 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.

This track was also released as a single with the B-side Willie and the Hand Jive and appears on the box set Who Knows Where the Time Goes? and on the 2CD Sandy Denny anthology No More Sad Refrains.

Later, Sandy joined Linda Thompson on stage for a duet performance of this song at Richard & Linda Thompson’s performance at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, in May 1975.
