In 2018, this was re-released on A Little Bit Of Us
with an extra verse and running to around 2 minutes 30 seconds. As might be inferred from the additional subtitle ("Chas's Message To Cancer"), this extra verse had a grim inspiration. The same month in an interview with the London freesheet Metro
, Chas Hodges, then a youthful 74, told an unnamed staff writer, "It suited my situation with the cancer. I've had treatment for cancer of the esophagus, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. I have check-ups every three months. I feel strong, I can play the piano, do gigs and my voice feels stronger than it did years ago."
