Song facts

“Lily The Pink” went on to be a gigantic hit. It was Number One for a month over Christmas and the New Year, selling a million and giving the NP Organisation a terrific credibility boost. Unfortunately, as a novelty record, albeit a brilliant one, it did not herald a string of Scaffold best-sellers. I was promoted to co-producer with Norrie for the follow-up, “Stop Blowing Those Charity Bubbles”, but it failed even to creep into the Top Fifty. I was absolutely certain that anything following a massive Number One had to totter at least into the bottom of the charts, but despite Paul McCartney’s guitar solo, “Charity Bubbles” sunk. I was still hitless, in chart terms, in any capacity.

Tim Rice – co-producer – from his book “Oh, What A Circus”
