The Fivepenny Piece Discography

Songs We Like To Sing
The Fivepenny Piece

Columbia SCX 6554

Release Date: 1973

Building on the by now familiar format of the first two albums, Songs We Like To Sing was another mixture of songs in the variety of styles associated with The Fivepenny Piece - the Lancashire nostalgia and humour of songs like I'm Powfagged, Mi Grandfather's Day and Down Our Street; the folk/pop of the title track and Gotta Get Away; and the curious What A Splendid Character. And not just one but two songs about Stalybridge!
