They were already one of my favourite bands, and that is among their best albums, but this was the first time I heard the song.
    Some more songs from juke boxes from the same era:

    I used to go in the long-closed Shakespeare in Lancaster in the early 1980s. With two or three friends we used to play pool and put some records on. This is one that always takes me back to a sunny Saturday around Easter of 1980. The Jam: Going Underground.

    My regular haunt in Lancaster was The Sun Hotel, which was then a fairly undistinguished back street boozer with pretty ordinary Yates & Jackson bitter, a pool table and a juke box. These three tracks always seemed to be on:

    Roy Orbison: Only The Lonely

    The Searchers: Take It Or Leave It

    The Jacksons: Walk Right Now
    Come On You Hatters!

    That still gets regular plays on Radio. I'm not a Ska or Reggae fan but like that one.

    Take It Or Leave It is by Jagger-Richards; the Stones did it on Aftermath.

    I remember the Aftermath album but probably haven't heard it since the 1960s! By my reckoning the Stones didn't really achieve greatness until they developed their own style circa 1969 when the Beatles were breaking up. I never saw either live but have spoken to people that saw one or both.

    The Stones are probably my all time favourite recording group, I did see them in the mid 80s but felt by then (at that time) they were a bit of a parody, best live group seen was the Who (3 times) live act seen most was Jethro Tull (8 times). Not seen any live music of not for many years now.

    Music is the one bigger passion than pubs for me. In my spare time (lots of it at the moment) I rate music and occasionally write reviews of it on a website called RateYourMusic, very much similar to this one. Generally I’m interested in all genres of music if they have spirit and something interesting to say. But I’m particularly fond of 50s - 60s pop music as well as the punk/post punk era.
