I Did What I Did For Maria was a UK Number 2 hit in June 1971 for Tony Christie. It was written and produced by Mitch Murray and Peter Callander, who were also responsible for Christie's 'Las Vegas' and 'Avenues And Alleyways'. The song is about a widower who, on the eve of his execution, recalls how he remorselessly avenged his dead wife, hence the title. The song was also a hit in Ireland, where it also reached Number 2.
Paper Lace included this song on their 1974 album, Paper Lace
