To dispel a myth. The songs were not actually sung by Marcus, Gary, Jenny or Michele. It was the Corona Stage Academy choir (the drama school that Jenny went to) that sung it. Though the credit is given on each side to "The Famous Five" :roll:

Thank you for the above link, Gary, I prefer eBay, to the above site (easier to use), I will hopefully obtain a copy of the single, sometime.

What's the Hopwood/Rowe 'B' side like??

B-side "Together Again" was written by ex-Herman's Hermits guitarist Keith Hopwood and his Pluto Recording Studios business partner at the time, Malcolm Rowe.


I bought a copy of the above single, today.

The Famous Five, single, arrived today, I have enjoyed listening to both sides of the single.

The seller, I obtained the single, from, also sent me two singles, for free (very nice I thought), unfortunately, I didn't like either single, both 1980's singles, a lot of 1980's music, doesn't appeal to me, my two favourite music decades, are the 1950's and the 1960's.

A good buy, Billy. I've still got my F5 single, which I acquired when it first came out. It is stored safely away in a box in my attic. I don't think I've played it for many a year! :D

I looked on eBay, last night, and for the first time ever, I saw the Famous Five single, listed, I bought the single, the record was listed as being in near mint condition, and the sleeve was listed as being in excellent condition.

Will be nice to possess, two copies of the Famous Five single.
