Yea yea remember being hipped to this one a while ago by Alvin Queen who started up Nilva Records..He was happy to send me a few of the 'Bassic' classics from the label this being amongst them (also included some Ray Drummond as I remember)..The vocal/bass comedy number sticks in my mind but with my turntable being down I haven't heard anything from this session in a while..Of course Bob's playing needs no introduction..The word 'Heavy' was invented for guys like him!! Many thanks for this little post.

Managed to pick up a copy of John Patton's Soul Connection on Nilva way back. Another great album from Alvin's label.
