The Wurzels and Adge Cutler Discography

I'll Never Get A Scrumpy Here
The Wurzels

EMI Note NTS 160

Release Date: November 1978

I'll Never Get A Scrumpy Here was The Wurzels' fifth and last true album for EMI - after this only compilations were issued. It was recorded at Ashton Court Country Club near Bristol in front of an invited audience consisting of members of the Wurzels' Fan Club - a cunning move to guarantee a good response!

The album includes songs by each of the individual band members - notably Pete Budd's hymn of praise to Mevagissey - as well as a couple of typical Wurzel numbers - Funky Farmyard and the parody The Tractor Song. It also featured Tommy Banner's instrumental tour de force Somerset Jigolo, a version of which is still a popular part of their live sets today.

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

Additional musicians: Rod Owne & Ed Welch (keyboards), Dougie White (drums)

Producer: Bob Barrett
