The Fivepenny Piece Discography

The Fivepenny Piece ......On Stage
The Fivepenny Piece

EMI One Up 2050

Release Date: October 1974

This was the first The Fivepenny Piece LP to be issued on EMI's One-Up label, and the band's first live album. It was recorded at the band's "home", the Broad Oak Hotel in Ashton-under-Lyne. The set gives a good impression of what the band's live shows must have been like, and as expected, they put on a good evening's entertainment for the punters.

As with the studio albums, the set contains a variety of material, this time with their Lancashire humour well to the fore, including a couple of monologues for good measure. The set also includes a couple of covers - Tim Hardin's well-known If I Were A Carpenter; and Alex Glasgow's humorous Keep Yer 'And On Yer 'Alfpenny (which incidentally was also recorded by West Country heroes The Wurzels who still include it in their stage act today). The album also includes the beautiful Radcliffe-Meeks song Brown Photographs.
