…is a British film from 1967 starring Sidney Poitier and Lulu that deals with social and racial issues in an inner city school.

Throughout their career the TCS have covered several songs. When they first started playing live, they would throw in a couple of cover versions to fill out their set – Van Morrison, The Smiths or Velvet Underground – so, it’s no surprise that they make such a good, if not, better job of other people’s tracks, and ‘To Sir, With Love’ is no exception.

Here’s a rare 12-inch one track white label promo.

On this copy there is no indication as to what it is promoting – some copies do have a handwritten title, which helps. The etched kangaroo on the flip side is the only clue as to what era it comes from.

The inner ring of the playing side is etched with ‘I’m off to the Ladies, she’s off to the Gents’ – a lyric from the single ‘The Main Attraction’.

As this was published as part of a press release, I can’t imagine there being too many of them around.
