Composer's note: In 1965 I was working as MD for singer Liza Shane, who had taken over from Barbra Steisand in the London run of 'Funny Girl'. She and her husband Peter Collinson came over to my flat in Hammersmith one evening and I recorded some outrageous spoof 'commercials' as a joke. Next day I was asked to do some for real for him and found out that Peter was much in demand as a film director of commercials. We remained friends and he went on to make feature films, most famously 'The Italian Job', but tragically died of cancer in his early forties.
