With their third lp they got a bit of a better reception from the music press with the lead off single Understanding Jane getting those "didn't know they had it in them" kind of reviews. A couple of the singles flirted with the top 40 without making the break through that would have lead to top of the pops and all that stuff.
This cover is a version of the Neil Young song and was recorded for the anti heroin project fund raising lp. There is a bit of a contradiction as in his autobiography Merseybeast Mcnabb admits drugs were featuring quite prominently for him at the time but hey its a top tune
The track also features the god like genius Pete Wylie on co vocals
You can buy the 3 disc version of If You Want to Defeat Your Enemy Sing His Song here (lp titles were never their strong point!)
