Brian Protheroe - Pinball (Chrysalis 2043 - 1974)

I first heard this single when it was first released back in 1974 on Radio One during one of the insipid daytime radio shows, possibly hosted by Simon Bates. It was like a breath of fresh air in that during that period, I was spending a great deal of time in a one room bedsit with a friend and the song meant so much more to us than the current chart fodder of the day. Brian Protheroe was also a stage actor who could be seen in the odd TV drama. He also had a bit part in the blockbuster Superman film released in 1978. But I remember Brian Protheroe mostly for this song, which I never tire of hearing.
