Filmed in 1980, but from an album released in 1979.

3 cool songs in a row right there A great Clash song, most of their best songs never made it on to radio. I hadn't thought about Jo Jo Gunne in a long long time and Mott is such an underappreciated band. I associate the sax solo in All the way.... to the lyrics in My Generation. Intentionally messed up.

I always had an issue with that sax solo. I thought it would have been better if Mick Ralphs played a guitar solo there but your theory does make sense.

1974

The song is the love song of a close family friend who babysits a young girl (actually the artist's manager's daughter), though for the first part of the song, the ambiguous text leads one to think that it is from one adult to another. The brief instrumental introduction is the sound of O'Sullivan whistling, before he comes in.

The real Clair was the three-year-old daughter of O'Sullivan's producer-manager, Gordon Mills, and his wife, the model Jo Waring. The little girl's giggling is heard at the end of this song. The "Uncle Ray" mentioned in the song is O'Sullivan himself, a reference to his real name of Raymond O'Sullivan. The instrumental break in the middle section is done half a step up from A to B-Flat, before going back to A.

Always did enjoy the key change.

When Barry's agent called him about this song he said he had good news and bad news. The bad news was that he was broke. The good news was that this song had reached # 1.

This version has been off YT for many years. Sound quality still isn't great but it is the best version.

I call these the Milllie Jackson "testifying songs" of the 1970. While men wrote the greatest songs about the love of their lives. Women were singing about their worthless men. Funny thing is, this song is by male writers.
