Hello Gary,

The track was recorded in Joe Meek's Holloway Road studio late 65/early 66, I can't quite remember. The tape still exixts I believe but it is one of those waiting in the Cliff Cooper treasure box waing to go to the National Sound Archive at the British Museum.

At that time Joe Meek had several outlets, Decca, Pye and EMI being the most prominent I think, but all of them said no. Joe then tried to get some pre mrelease plugging but the Beeb would not touch the record saying it was too blood thirsty. Of course, it could have been our singing.

Thanks for your interest.
