*Two versions of this track were recorded - the first version, with the whole band and John singing lead vocals was discarded, although Trevor still has a copy which may be added to the site at a later date. The second version with Trevor singing lead vocals against John's freaky guitar chords was released.

This album received very favourable reviews and the band toured England and Europe to promote it. After recording "Keeping Up" the band changed management from Eddie Kennedy to Wilf Pine (Worldwide Music) who also managed Black Sabbath, Tony McPhee and the Groundhogs, Jimmy Helms and others. Wilf had very clear ideas on how he wanted the band to sound and brought in Rupert Hine to produce the third album "Growing".
