Friday Night Is Muzak Night

Great lyrics and a very Wizard of Oz feel, this - and the plot of the 1949 musical whence it comes, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court is pretty similar, with our American hero waking up in Camelot. The Bing Crosby version's even more 'wizardy'.

More gentle, half-forgotten 80s stuff. Always had a soft spot for this. How come Peter and Jeremy never made more - or did they and I missed it ?

Not sure if my last comment made it but here goes...Peter and jerry where my neighbours for many years and have never really ceased recording...a bit twee for me but lots of stuff ut there.

If you dig a little more, their Hatfield and the North stuff still bears listening to.
