Remarks A pleasant surprise to find out that Tyrone was singing in this era. Most people I'm sure think of him making an impact in the mid-seventies. Yet this tune for Gibbo – which could be one of his first – as got that classic 68 Sound – late 68. Also in tune with the times, Tyrone gives a Biblical twist to his story of a bad girl. It's also sung with a lot of passion. It's really the only way Tyrone could sing. It's also very likely that Gibbo recorded him before he recorded Nicky Thomas – and quickly realised that a strong heavy rhythm with a powerful singer – works every time. It would have been great if Tyrone did a few more for Gibbo.
