    That must cover most of their discography then Sweaty. I'll have to put them in rotation one of these days.

    Re: Steeleye Span

    Due to Steeleye Span's link with Mike Batt who produced some of their output, they actually appeared on Top Of The Pops here in the UK dressed as the Wombles to mime to one of the Wombles' "hit" songs.

    Imagine the surreal sight of the audience "dancing" to Gaudette on the same programme with Span dressed as monks.

    The price of fame :oyea:

    One of the more embarrassing elements of UK "culture" :lmao:

    From wikipedia

    The Wombles are fictional pointy-nosed, furry creatures that live in burrows, where they help the environment by collecting and recycling rubbish in useful and ingenious ways. Wombles were created by author Elisabeth Beresford, originally appearing in a series of children's novels from 1968. Although Wombles supposedly live in every country in the world, the stories are concerned with the life of the inhabitants of the burrow on Wimbledon Common in London, England.

    The characters became nationally famous in the UK in the mid 1970s as a result of a very popular BBC children's television show using stop motion animation. A number of spin-off novelty songs also became major hits in the British music charts.


    They "sung" a couple of hit singles but they were session players lead by Mike Batt who produced some of Steeleye Spans work.
