The Wurzels and Adge Cutler Discography

I Am A Cider Drinker
The Wurzels

Encore ONCR 523

Release Date: June 1979

A quirky compilation of Wurzels material, including a couple of sought-after gems not previously issued on albums (Springtime and The Back Of My Old Car). Not really a "greatest hits" package as the title track is the only chart hit on the album, but this collection does contain a few Scrumpy & Western favourites such as My Somerset Crumpet Horn, the Wurzels' version of The Shepton Mallet Matador and The Cabot Song.

The first side of the album consists of studio tracks and the second is made up of live tracks - these are edited together with chat from the boys between songs, which explains why there are fewer tracks on side 2.

Band line-up: Tommy Banner (piano, organ, accordion, vocals), Tony Baylis (bass, bass guitar, sousaphone and vocals) and Pete Budd (banjo, guitar and vocals).

Producer: Bob Barrett
