Worzel Gummidge Sings

Now a re-up of an old classic! Most stars these days like to get off their heads, but worzel prefers to get his head off! I'm a fan some of the incidental/background music in the show but can't get hold of anything much - can anyone help?





Little known fact*
Jon Pertwee insisted on recording these tracks dressed as Worzel Gummidge, and wouldn't sing unless a cup of tea/slice of cake was provided for him on an hourly basis. Similarly Una Stubbs recorded her parts only after she could access the trolley full of cream cakes mentioned in her contract.

I would have tried to get a pic of my LP cover on here but couldn't be aaaaaaaaaar-sed!

Update - I've found the pics from when I ripped this a couple of years ago, so grab them if you want them, they are not in the archive.

  5. Hope he had his "singin' 'ed" on when he recorded this...
    I've just been watching the first 4 series of Worzel with the family. Very entertaining - it's both happy and sad. The leads are great and there are some excellent guest appearances (eg Barbara Windsor as Saucy Nancy). Love Geoffrey Bayldon as The Crowman as well. You're right about the incidental music - each character had a theme that played when they appeared. Would like to hear the Crowman's theme - and the Scarecrow Hop!
