This is a track from Sun Structures, the debut studio album by the English psychedelic rock band Temples. The group adopted a DIY approach to language in order to concoct their own, mystical vernacular for the album. "We use words as sounds in a way which almost creates your own language," vocalist James Bagshaw explained to NME. "If an English teacher read the lyrics, there will be mistakes everywhere and probably some words that might not even be words. But it's more important that the word sounds right in order to serve the melody, which I guess is quite similar to what Tyrannosaurus Rex used to do. The meaning might be a bit little skewed, but it's music – it's not a book of poems."
Bassist Tom Warmsley explained the use of autoharp on this song to NME: "It has a very percussive, bright, glissando quality to it and you almost use it like a rhythm guitar," he said. "It has this really unique, bright tone that adds another layer to the track."
Don't be fooled by the name - an autoharp is not a harp at all, but is basically a chorded zither.
Stephens Stills played timbales on the Bee Gees hit, "You Should Be Dancing." He was in the next door studio laying down a Crosby, Stills and Nash album and could hear Saturday Night Fever being recorded. Stills recognized its potential to be a monster hit and he wanted to contribute.
Originally a chart-topper for Steve Lawrence in 1962 chart-topper, "Go Away Little Girl," became the first song of the rock era to be taken to #1 by two different artists when Donny Osmond's cover version also reached the summit in 1971.
