This Jam cover was recorded at Hook End Manor with producers Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley, but the time of recording and personnel involved are not clear. Biographer Simon Goddard states that the song was recorded at the end of the "Kill Uncle" album sessions which took place in the autumn of 1990. However the song credits seem to point to the post "Kill Uncle" recording session in December 1990 where Morrissey recorded material for a planned but shelved rockabilly mini-album. In both scenarios Mark Nevin played guitar, Andrew Paresi drums and Steve Heart organ, but Boz Boorer is credited as second guitar (he entered the picture between the two sessions) and Jonny Bridgwood is credited for bass instead of Mark 'Bedders' Bedford who had that job on the "Kill Uncle" sessions. The song also features guests Cathal Smyth on backing vocals and Kate St.John on cor anglais.
This song has never been performed specifically for radio, television or the web.
This song has been done in concert 54 times by Morrissey, only on the 1991 Kill Uncle tour. Actually, considering that information is missing for a handful of dates that year, it can be safely assumed that the song could have been done up to 58 times. An interesting oddity is the one-off arrangement of the song with an intro of T.Rex's "Cosmic Dancer", as performed in Santa Monica on 4 November 1991.
No demos or studio outtakes of this song have leaked to the general public at this point in time.
In a 1992 interview published in Slitz magazine, Morrissey said "It was a completely worthless version. I wanted to make it different from the original, but maybe I shouldn't have tried that. The original is a classic and Paul Weller is, when he wants to be, a genius."
