  • In 1981, Wishbone Ash played three dates in India. According to the band's official biography Blowin' Free, the track was inspired by "some of the more exotic sites that they saw in the red light district of Bombay". The song was written by Andy Powell, Laurie Wisefield and drummer Steve Upton (who is credited with the words). >>
