When "Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)
" was released on June 29, 1973, it included two tracks on the B-side: "Jack Rabbit
" and this unheralded gem. Running to around 2 minutes 51 seconds, it features David Johnstone on slide guitar. In a March 2014 interview with the official Elton John website, Johnstone said: "That's a slide-guitar with some vibrato. I think Rod Stewart was going to record this song at one point. I know he did 'Let Me Be Your Car' (an outtake from Don't Shoot Me…
). That was written for Rod, and I think he was really keen on doing this one also."
