Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave. Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. The song has subsequently appeared on numerous compilation albums, including Rising Free (1980), The Collection (1987), Last Tango, Midnight at the Fringe (1988), Winter of '89 (1992), Home from Home (1999) [8] and Tom Robinson Band The Anthology 1977–1979.

The B-side is a cover of Bob Dylan's " I Shall Be Released" which Robinson performed many times, including as part of the supergroup "The Secret Police" at The Secret Policeman's Ball in 1979. Tom Robinson "2-4-6-8 Motorway" at Glastonbury 2016 | "2-4-6-8 Motorway" 40th ANNIVERSARY TOUR takes place October 2017, performing Power In The Darkness album in full.singing solutions to entertainment venues, bars, pubs and anywhere else people want to sing together! It was the way everyone played it on the record, and especially Danny Kustow’s guitar work, that finally persuaded EMI they had a future hit on their hands.

Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. Lots of people in the punk community hated poor Tom because He was for gay rights, with songs like "Glad To Be Gay". Records that aren't in picture sleeves will either be in a company sleeve or a generic plain sleeve.

Robinson wrote the song between leaving Café Society in 1976 and forming the Tom Robinson Band the following year, at a time when he was performing with whichever friends were available on the night; thus, the song had to be simple enough to learn in a few minutes. I think all of this goes on and persists because actual equality means a lot of folks who have outrageous stuff will have to give some of it up. There’s nothing very punky about their first single either, but its stomping beat and shout-along chorus made it a hit. As each date came up, I would ring musician friends in other bands to see who was available to play on the night. It was released as a single in 1977 by British punk rock/ new wave group the Tom Robinson Band, and reached No.
