| ||Apparently the guy's real name was Reginald John Davidge. This single was released in the USA under the name "J.P. Jones" (Cotillion 44102), which got Led Zeppelin's (and Peter Grant's) attention. The USA 45 was then withdrawn and re-issued under the artist name "John".|

| ||Godley, Creme and Stewart were backing musicians on this - JPJ was actually club comedian Reg Gray.|

| ||"Got To Get Together Now" is one of the great forgotten B-sides of the Seventies, in my opinion. An extraordinary offering, set to a slow minor-key 3/4 tune, its four minutes include "native" chanting, slurping noises, "dirty old man" interjections, operatic warbling, broad Northern and Sloane Ranger accents.... and the lyrics are truly bizarre, a disorientating mix of unresolved images and non-sequiturs. The spirit of Syd Barrett is not far off!|
It doesn't seem to have been compiled anywhere, which means that you should still be able to get hold of a copy for about 50p.
