 On the sixtieth anniversary of Her Majesty's accession: it's incredible how Ms Charles has maintained such a long career as a 'lookalike' when the resemblance is, frankly, negligible.

 I found this little gem in a record store clearance box, i think it was about 20p but i could be wrong. I purchased it for the AWB track which is brilliant, but the other four are not too bad especially Wally & THMK, John Golding is nice but the Adrian Wagner is tripe (crap really but i'm being nice)

 Are those timings correct (b-side especially)? Don't you have to play it at full blast before you can hear anything?!

 I got my two copies in 1974, I don't know where from, but I think were were free, maybe ask Danny Baker.

I thought that AWB's version of the Isley Brothers "Work To Do", was very faithful to the original, but that was it.

There must have been plenty left over for you to have gotten a copy 18 months or so later......

 I received a free copy of this EP at an AC/DC gig at the City Hall, Glasgow in June 1976. Two decent tracks out of five ain't bad for nothing. (HMK & AWB)
