 Four weeks on the unnumbered Breakers list from 24 Nov 1973.

 That's a record I have never had in my own collection. I'm not even sure if I've heard it. I think it charted in 1970 but I can't say I remember it, although I do remember many hits from that year ("In The Summertime", "Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes", "Yellow River", "Spirit In The Sky", "Bridge Over Troubled Water", "Let It Be", "All Kinds Of Everything", "Wanderin' Star", "Leaving On A Jet Plane" and "Years May Come, Years May Go" are among the ones I remember hearing regularly on the radio that year). I was 8 then, incidentally.

 I think my copy of The Witch by The Rattles may have been one of those (bought in the early 80s to replace my knackered original)...

 I didn't know this one had been re-released in September 1976. I bought a copy cheap in the early eighties, which I assumed was made in 1973. It was a regular stock copy with the four-prong push-out centre as shown here. I know Decca were still making those in 1976 because my John Miles singles are also like that.

 Yeah. I'm with you on this one. It's an amazing track and still very cheap to pick a copy up.

I must admit I didn't notice the line about Rock On until I read the book about Ace Records. It turns out that Ted Carroll who opened Rock On and later the Chiswick/Big Beat/Ace labels used to be Thin Lizzy's manager.

I love how he repeatedly sings I'm A Rocker then adds I'm A Roller Too Honey just at the right moment..

I've pretty much sickened myself of The Boys Are Back In Town but this one still sounds very sweet indeed.

 "I love to rock and roll, I get my records at the Rock On store."

Separates the men from the boys. Phased guitar solo tops it off. A favourite on my local's jukebox back in the day.
