Lyn and Peter's performance of When I Was Small captured the hearts of the New Seekers fans and remained a firm favourite.  The group continued to perform it, long after Lyn and Paul had left, sometimes as a serious piece and often played it for laughs but it is Lyn and Peter's poignant version which is best remembered.

When Peter introduced this song at the Royal Albert Hall he described it as more a song about religion than about faith.  It was one of several songs written by Lovett and Peacock for the group.  Rob Lovett had been in the Virgil Brothers with Peter and Brian Peacock had played with the Librettos, a group which had provided backing to a young Peter Doyle when they were on tour together in Australia.

1st released  29th May, 2004

From the Rarities liner notes:
"Peter and Jane were in Woodstock (1982) when he wrote this song for her.  It languished in the filing system for over 10 years before John [Cartwright], out of frustration through Peter's in-action with what was such a beautiful song, recorded a backing track and took it to Gisborne.  Peter then added his haunting guitar lines and vocal in one take.  He listened to the playback, smiled, and said 'What's Next?'.”
