In spite of the explicit nature of this song, the Swinging Sixties did not really begin until a couple of years later. Al Stewart has probably captured their ethos better than any other songwriter with the contemporaneous "Love Chronicles
" and the much later "Gina In The Kings Road
," but Lloyd Webber - who is around three years younger than Stewart - was also there, as was lyricist, the somewhat older and London-born Don Black, and considering the furor the Profumo Affair caused at the time, they can hardly be accused of perpetrating an anachronism.
