 Just listened to the B-side here and I agree it's a great track. Replacing previously posted non-working video below.

"Alone At Eight"

A-side not a bad cover of the Paul Evans single

"Seven Little Girls"

 i dont think i ever played the b' side - just played it and its great.

 Yes, they do. I'm surprised they didn't cover more of the Fleetwoods' stuff over here.

 Their harmonies always reminded me of The Fleetwoods.

I've always loved this 'B' side and always played this side rather than SLG. Still sounds good today.

 I've had this record for a lot of years now, but have never bothered to listen to the b-side. But I'll dig it out and give it a spin

Edit: Actually, it's a band-composed song and the Avons weren't bad songwriters, e.g. Dance On

 Hi Everybody. Re; ALONE AT EIGHT . In my humble opinion I would say that this is an absolutely fabulous record and I will say that SLG was not bad either. However, I think that this should have been the top side as opposed to being the "B" side. It seemed to me that when looking back on it, it typified the era of the end of the "Teddy" boys period into a period of innocence which is now commonly known as the pre Beatle years ...1960 - 61 - 62 - very early 1963. Honestly it is a cracking song and would politely advise anyone who reads this to try to get a hold of it and listen to it if they can. You will not be dissapointed.. Sid Brighton.
