And Vin did a great version of it on "Tossing a Wobbler" (Topic Records Ltd, London 12TS385, 1978) - and in the album notes he writes:

"A great song written by my mate Pete Betts, about the good times that were had during his childhood in South Bank, near Middlesborough, after the pubs had closed. These were the days before the television took over the spot where the piano used to stand and people used to sing, rather than listen to records - like yourselves."
