Marvellous pro-environmental song ('who needs the trees and the flowers to grow, we can have a motorway with motorway dough, I know I know they've got to go') with a glorious string arrangement by the drummer's brother. Possibly a little too lyrically heavy for the average singles buyer in 1972. The story goes that Slade were dead worried their next single would not be No. 1 because Lindisfarne were going to release 'Wake Up Little Sister', the dead cert major hit, from their third album 'Dingly Dell' as a 45. Instead they went with this, and it fell well short of the Top 30.
