The Fivepenny Piece

Columbia SCX 6488

Release Date: 1972

This was the band's first album and contained some of their best known and loved songs, such as Ee By Gum, Mountain Climber, and Big Jim. The two sides of the album were very different in character and indicated (at least!) two sides to the band - on side one consisted of what might be called "pop/folk" songs, which were contrasted by the distinct Lancashire flavour of the songs on side two.

  3. Look Into My Eyes
  4. Watering Can
  5. Tuppence Change

The Fivepenny Piece CD cover

The cover photo shows the band at the bridge at Portland Basin, on the Ashton Canal. The present bridge dates from 1835, and was built to allow horse-drawn canal boats to be towed across the junction with the Peak Forest Canal. For more views of the area, see the excellent Pennine Waterways website.
