One of two hits by the Move and penned by Roy Wood which were recorded by the New Seekers with Peter singing lead vocals.  A number one hit for the Move in 1969, it was also later performed and recorded by another of Roy Wood's creations: ELO.  As was the case with some other songs performed by the group, the New Seekers version omitted a verse from the original hit.

A Bob Dylan protest song from the early 60s this is one of the few songs covered by both the Seekers and New Seekers.  Peter sings the lead and delivers the song's powerful message in his own rousing, inimitable style, creating a version unique amongst the literally hundreds of covers of this song.
