Thank U very much, the very best of Scaffold - Do You Remember?,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thank U Very Much - The Very Best Of Scaffold (Audio CD)John Gorman, Mike McGear and Radio 4's favourite poet Roger McGough, better known as Scaffold, are perhaps best remembered for the novelty records `Thank U Very Much' and `Lily the Pink' As this collection shows, this is perhaps a little unfair as musically they were an inventive and talented bunch.
The set opens with the obvious two crowd pleasers, then proceeds to meander its way through a set of well crafted novelty and serious pop tunes, rooted firmly in Liverpool. My personal favourites are the more thoughtful `Promiscuity' and `Uptown and Downtown'. This set covers pretty much all the best bits from their career. The remastering is pretty good, and the scouse accents come through nice and clearly! Also included is a short essay outlining the history of the band.
By turns poppy, jazzy and rocky, always with a sense of fun, intelligent lyrics and great musicianship. A great happy feeling record, to lift the mood at any occasion!
Thank U very much lads.
