In a 1972 interview with Sounds, guitarist Dave Hill described the song as a “live, earth-dirt song”. He said: “I felt much more out of that than I did from all the rest, it projected more, and it wasn’t just a hit record. I didn’t know if that kind of song could make it, and it was great having a thick, dirty song up at number one.”
