    That's a great cover, thanks for the link. It could be the one I remember. To be honest it's been so long since I went to the place that played it that it's hard to tell. I'll listen to it with half a wrap of cheap speed up my nose and the lights off to see if it all comes flooding back to me....

      Well I was mod in the late 80s and use to go to mod clubs and rallys. I al went to hippie/psyche clubs to like Circles. This was the version that people used to play back then.

        There was an early 90's hip-hop track entitled I'm a man - which I thought was wicked! Big slabs of some original 'I'm a man' sample spread amplely all the way through - word!
        Time to say peace...

              There's also the version by Macho which came out on Prelude and is a big DJ Harvey spin. Produced by Malavasi, who did the Change stuff. This may well be the one that Col hates. I love it, though it's so preposterously gay it comes with a glory hole rather than a record centre and the label is made from recycled handlebar moustaches and yellow handkerchiefs.

                  I remember "Leaders of the new school" sampling it, I think on a track called transformers, in 1991 - may be the one!

                        ?!

                        There's also a not half bad mid 70's discofunky version by err whasshisname. . . the Martyn Ford Orchestra on the "Smoovin" LP. Snobadman ? As they might say in Scotland.

                          Sorry don't remember them. I mainly hung out with kent mod crowd. I was also quite young in my late teens, so probably a bit shy too! Other people we might jointly know maybe, phoetos phil, Smiler, the worm twins?

                          It was a great club though, the Mod clubs at the time were a bit cliquey and Circles seemed a bit more fun!

                            Wynder K Frog cover

                            The Wynder K. Frog cover (recorded in Paris in 1967) is no so longer : less than 4 minutes of ... pure mod sound
                            The original issue is an Island 7'' (6014). The B-side (Shook shimmy shake) is also very good. I think the 8 minutes cover is the Chicago Autority one.
