I dont know if anyone else noticed bt the guy playing the guitar on the left nearly looses his balance just before they begin singing 

I've just had another look.... he does wobble about a bit. He's got huge sideburns too!  ;D

I can remember this perfomance and that Cindy Kent was Cliff Richard's girlfriend.

Was she really?  I didn't know that.  ???

I'm amazed, I didn't think he was interested in girls.

Wasn't he going to marry Sue Barker at one time?  >18<

Interesting mix. At first I thought it was simply the original, but from the last 20 seconds it isn't.

The mistake in the backing vocals which you can hear on the single and album versions isn't there, and the main vocal is different.

Re-recorded in accordance with MU rules for this programme?

Awesome!! Very classy & stylish indeed!! Tanxx!!...As a commercial Pop Group, The Settlers looked rather sedate & conventional.. ;)

The Settlers, like the Seekers & many other "Folk Rock" outfits, stemmed & grew from the Folk "Hootenanny" boom of the Early 1960s, a precursor to...All a little sedate by 1972, some "10 Years After"....He He!! ;) ;)
