Buying the albums sampled on “You Can All Join In”.
More this time from Chris Welch’s May 2005 notes in the CD insert:
“Says Mike: “Our version [of “Tobacco Road” see immediately above] caused quite a stir in America. That’s why they changed the name of the album and used a different cover as well. That was the number that really got people interested in the band because it was quite heavy. Some of the tracks like “It Hurts You So” were soft ballads.
“Gary sang on that one and on “Forget It I Got It”. “Luger’s Groove” [one of the bonus tracks on the CD] was really Luther James Grosvenor. I don’t know why he called himself “Peter Luger” – nothing to do with me! We also did “The Weight” [another bonus track], a song by J. R. Robertson of The Band, which we released as a single and was on the U.S. edition of the album. You can hear the stereo version on the bonus tracks. We performed “The Weight” on “Beat Club” the TV pop show in Bremen, Germany.” ”
