This is a spoof band folks! Any resemblance to persons living or dead is purely coincidental. The guitars are real though.
Written by Meredith Willson in 1950 as 'Till I Met You' and used in the film 'The Music Man'. This version is based on the cover recorded by the Beatles in 1963 on their second album, which featured an original solo by George Harrison.
An anonymous 16th century duet. The two parts interleave, taking turns to play the melody and the accompaniment.
An instrumental version of the Lennon/McCartney song which featured on the album and film 'A Hard Dayís Night'.
By Vincenzo Capirola (1474 Ė c.1548). There is a slightly modified anonymous version called The Duke of Somerset's Dompe. The dompe was a type of dance or melancholy song.
The bandís attempt at a western theme. Make up your own story. Maybe a hot, dusty town. A lone stranger rides in, falls for a girl, gets caught up in a feud, shoots the baddies and rides off into the sunset.
By John Dowland (1563-1626). Nothing is known about said shoemaker or his wife, but as Northampton was a shoe town, maybe they were local?
An instrumental by Joe Brown, released in 1963 as the B side to 'Natureís Time For Love'.
Another John Dowland hit, here given a bit of a tweak on the repeats.
A parody-style song written by the band which among other things illustrates why they donít sing very often.
Released on Led Zeppelin III in 1970, the original is a song by Robert Plant to his, er, dog.
A bit of generic ragtime.
The original was released by Chuck Berry in 1964.
Another creation by the band. It begins like a 16th century dance known as the passamezzo moderno or modern half-step before getting a bit more lively. The passamezzo form is still used in many musical genres such as Bluegrass.
Based on the much-altered Led Zeppelin version of a 1920s blues song.
