The title track to the 1968 film of the same name. This gritty British film broke many taboos with its graphic tale of life in a run down sink school in 1960s East London. The film starred Lulu, but the main character was a black (scandalous!) school teacher from America who believed, unlike his fellow teachers, that he really could make a difference to the bored, unruly students given up on by the rest of the teaching staff. Sidney Poitier played the starring role thought by many to be brilliant. Lulu’s legendary producer Mickey Most arranged the track. Lulu knowing what a big Hollywood film this could become expected a full orchestral arrangement and was very upset when Most would only agree to pay for a tiny string section.
