Kasenatz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus "Quick Joey Small"

This humdinger wormed it’s way into my consciousness through some long lost bubblegum comp tape a lass made to educate me/ drive further towards madness. The hook is absolutely ridiculously catchy. This is homemade video, but the YouTube comments are sheer joy:
Great to see two guys posting comments to this excellent track and vid from Stoke-on-Trent. I am also from there, and used to dance to this when i was a mod and a skinhead at the Top Rank as well. All the best to you guys. Also thanks for posting this cosycorp…. from Steve….” – I could just imagine a roomful of cute and orthodonically-challenged skins and mods singing this at the top of their voices.
“used to own this before it got knicked at one one of them parties,you kno the type i mean!” – Hell yes i do! I would have knicked this blighter as well, mate.

(Apparently Elton John also recorded this song. I hate Elton John.)
PS. Terribly lazy band name. Vanilla Fudge, Strawberry Alarm Clock, uh Kasenetz-Katz Super Circus (? i thought they were called Singing Orchestral Circus which also don’t have much of a ring to it, do it?) And they sure don’t make record covers like this anymore- thankfully. The cynical money grab artwork is off-putting and belies a genuinely fun record.
