This song is one of many songs recorded during sessions for Perry's 1973 album "And I Love You So" but excluded from final release. A few of these songs have surfaced from pre-release acetates and they seem to indicate a definite change in direction from a country flavoured album to one that was more pop orientated. The final album mix certainly didn't lack for success but one is left to imagine what it may have been had the original direction been followed.
