Recorded with Wings up at the old Air London Studios, Linda's dramatic vocal harks back to the Fifties and Sixties when strange stories were told by acts like The Shangri-Las, The Coasters, and others. It was made into an excellent animatged film by Ian Eames which was later objected to by some lady writing to a newspaper to complain about the nudity and it's effect on her 5 year old child. A female figure is seen naked, yes but come on! - it's only a harmless drawing, the likes of which have been on view in museums around the world for centuries.
