It was originally released as Parlophone ER 4184 and became a hit record in Britain at the time.
It was the first British jazz record to get into the Top Twenty, and stayed there for six weeks. Its success was very much due to the very catchy piano riff, played by Johnny Parker and brought to the front by producer Joe Meek.
"Bad Penny Blues" was featured in Mike Figgis' film Red, White & Blues and is on the soundtrack CD of that film.
