I to cannot single out any one 5pp. song, as I to enjoy them all. If I did though, have to make the choice, I would plump for, Mountain Climber, Watercolour Morning,and King Cotton, as my initial choice. Add to that Got to get away, and Four Strong Winds. To make this decision is proving very difficult as all the Bands Material is so enjoyable.

I've only just got reacquainted with Five Penny Piece, they were a favourite group of my dearly departed mum. Having listened to the two CD's I bought, I'd have to say that 'BIG JIM' is particularly funny - but all the songs are great for different reason's.
Can’t believe it, woke up at 6:00 am reciting the lyrics to "The Battle of Hastings", not a song I know but wot great work. My father loved the band and I'll be telling him all about this web site now. May be I haven’t looked hard enough but who wrote this lymric/poem?, I'll gig out the tape tonight and play it, does any one know if it is on one of the albums?
As per my previous posting regarding " The Battle of Hastings ", it is available on the " Fivepennypiece on Stage", album from 1974, check with E-Bay shops, as I do know that one shop owner does have at least one copy, if he does still have it of course.

Steve - 'The Battle of Hastings' is on the band's 2007 album 'Where It All Began' which is availabile from the band shop on the Fivepenny Piece website.
As for the lyrics - check the Lyrics page on the Fivepenny Piece website, and you'll find a link to the Monologues website which has the lyrics waiting for you!
There are so many songs that I like I cant single out any ..but one of my most played is "I dont know if I wanna go home" I purchesd all of the LP's in the 70's and early eighties. Still play them today along with the more recent CD's. Steve, Wellington, New Zealand.
Hi from new member "eebagum" (original or what?). I reckon my favourite songs are, for the comic ones it has to be 'Ee by gum', cos I walk round singing it word perfect, and for the serious side it is 'Mi Gronny'. All this is academic as with the quality of everything the band have done, you can't really pick a favourite, they all shine in their own way. I am slowly collecting the cds after coming across the site when I got my new pc. I remember them from the 70s, ahving being introduced to the music by an RAFcolleague who was from the group's home area.
