The Pipkins were a short-lived novelty duo, best known for their hit single "Gimme Dat Ding" (written by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood), which reached No. 6 in the UK Singles Charts, No. 7 in Canada (RPM Top Singles), and No. 9 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1970. They were Roger Greenaway, best known as a member of several songwriting teams, and Tony Burrows, a singer who had fronted several groups (often simultaneously) such as Edison Lighthouse, The Flower Pot Men, White Plains, The First Class and Brotherhood of Man.

The Pipkins also released two follow-ups as singles, "Yakety Yak" and "Are You Cooking, Goose?", but without success. "My Baby Loves Lovin'" had been a hit for White Plains, whilst "Sunny Honey Girl" was a Top 20 hit for Cliff Richard in 1971 on the UK Singles Chart.

According to the CD booklet for The Sweet And The Pipkins, "Gimme Dat Ding" is considered "the first rap record".

It was a concept album in that the first song on it introduced the Pipkins, and the last song on it has them falling through the "little hole" on the album.

I'm a Loser" is a song by the Beatles, originally released on Beatles for Sale in the United Kingdom, later released on Beatles '65 in the United States. Written by John Lennon, (though credited to Lennon–McCartney), it was considered for release as a single until Lennon wrote "I Feel Fine".

According to music critic Richie Unterberger, while the lyrics tell a story of romantic rejection, "I'm a Loser" is one of the first Beatles compositions that "goes beyond young love," including "the hypocrisy of keeping up a happy face when your world's falling down"
