In October 2008, Martin Turner said this track "harks back to the 60s...I had in mind us young lads when we first started going down to the local pub drinking cider, singing songs and generally getting fairly drunk and disorderly. I was never that happy with the recording of this one - it should have been looser and scruffy even but everyone did their best with it at the time."
Although this is a song that could easily have been written by a veteran rock star reminiscing about the good old days, Turner was actually speaking of events that happened more than 35 years ago; "Sing Out The Song" is the 7th
track on Wishbone Four
which was released in the UK May 1973 on the MCA label. Like the rest of the album, it is a group composition; it also has a semi-acoustic almost folkish feel to it totally unlike the duel lead guitar sound for which the band were already then becoming known.
