Rock 'N' Roll Bolero

UK, 6th October, 1978
Barn Records - 2014 127

This was a change in direction for the band, merging a bolero with rock and roll (and it worked!), but again, despite radio airplay, the single failed to chart in the UK.

Belgium - Barn - 1978.



France, 1978 - Vinyl, 7",45 RPM, Single
Barn Records, Ltd. - 2014 127


In France, there were two different versions of this record released: -  First, the single was released, as per the UK release, and then it was flipped over and re-released with "It's All Right Buy Me" as the A-Side!









My thanks to Chris 'The Historian' Selby for his relentless research. It is said, in certain circles, that Walsall Archives have a seat reserved specifically for him and that Wolverhampton archives consult him when searching the Express & Star

It's Alright Buy Me
(Noddy Holder & Jimmy Lea)

Three way lanes and aeroplanes, lonely hotel rooms
Burger stands, new wave bands, forty radio tunes
Three chord bash, make it flash, who says it's gonna die?
Drivin' sounds and boogie clowns - all the reasons why

Well it's allright by me - it's all right by me
What has got to be, will be, yeah, it's all right by me

Poker games and baggage lanes - always there to lose
Dirty shirts, bits of skirt, a constant smell of booze

Well it's allright by me - it's all right by me
What has got to be, will be, yeah yeah yeah, it's all right by me

Well it's OK, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
What has got to be has got to be - it's allright by me yeah yeah yeah

I never did get into crooners - Serenading Moon in Juners
Only hell for leather looners - everyday.........

Poker games and baggage lanes - always there to lose
Dirty shirts, bits of skirt, a constant smell of booze

Well it's allright by me - it's all right by me
What has got to be, will be, yeah yeah yeah, it's all right by me
Well it's allright by me - it's all right by me
What has got to be, will be, yeah yeah yeah, it's all right by me

It's all right by me
It's all right by me
