Like all songs from the LP Rock On, this track was recorded at The Manor, Oxfordshire in January 1972 and produced by Trevor Lucas. It was also released as B-side of the single When Will I Be Loved?.

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.
