The Fivepenny Piece Discography

The Camera And The Song
Various Artists

BBC Super Beeb BELP006

Release Date: 1975

This album is a compilation of songs from the BBC2 TV series The Camera & The Song, broadcast in the early 1970s. The Fivepenny Piece found themselves in the illustrious company of some of the country's leading singers and songwriters - a measure of the esteem in which the team of Meeks & Radcliffe were held. Apart from Mountain Climber, the LP contains some fine tracks, including the lugubrious but humorous Yorkshire performer Jake Thackray; the brilliantly satirical Jeremy Taylor; one of England's finest songwriters Harvey Andrews; and Alex Glasgow, who conceived the programme with producer John Bird.
