It's not Smile. It's a collaboration between Eddie Howell, Brian and Freddie. The song was recorded in 1976. Eddie Howell sings the lead, Freddie plays the piano, Brian the electric guitar and they both do backing vocals on this record. The song was written by Eddie Howell himself.

For more information, buy the Freddie Solo Collection.

had the 7" 45 of this some time ago...( i sold my collection a long time ago)

in the days when 45s were the thing to have...used to have the UK lurex, ssor and kya as well as bo rhap, stl in pic sleeves and some other inetresting things...
anyhow the howell single...was also produced by freddie i think...and didn't it have a b-side that was just another version of the A side?

it was no great track....just a curio for queen collectors...
there were much better tracks around at the time...like Ian Hunter's You Nearly Did Me In (again with freddie on)

I love this track! To me, it's basically another Queen song, as there are Freddie and Brian fingerprints all over it. One of my favourite Brian guitar orchestrations for sure.

If you are a stupid moron who doesn't know the answer, don't pretend to be intelligent and accuse QZ of being the source of your "I'm-not-telling-you", that makes you look even more like a little kid.

Well, you dont know me, you dont know what i know, i might of been standing up for some one else here, but seing is you know everything, i cant say that, coz after all, you are one of the arogant fools i was reffereing to when i replie, but then you knew i didnt like you from the start thats why you felt you had to made a point yeah.... figured as much, well, i have finshed my time here, back to my life, wich i am sure that you dont have one. later...

My word, look what you've done! I've now had to agree with you twice in one year. I think that's a record.

Such a great song... I'm sure this came up somewhere in the forum, and I'll do my best to look it up, but what's with the "Back Again" version? I love that version as well and listen to them regularly. It would be great to note some anecdotes surrounding the production of these two songs. Thanks!
