"Have You Got 10p ?"... A Car Boot Sale Bargain !


I passed this by when it was originally released, probably due to its slightly disco sounding vibe, and not being yer usual TRB style. (It was co-written with Elton John.) I wasn’t the only one; the band disowned the track for the very same reasons, which is why it’s credited to Tom Robinson and The Voice Squad. Judging by the crackles I have a feeling that the previous owner of this single preferred the B-Side Getting Tighter, which is much more yer standard TRB affair, even though the writing credit is given to Hot Peaches, so it may be a cover version (I googled Hot Peaches and just got links to porn) alternatively it may me a tongue in cheek reference to the 1979 Gay Pride/Stonewall Campaign that this single was released as a benefit/promo for. Whatever.... It’s up for grabs here if you want a listen.
