Live At The Queen Elizabeth Hall - Scaffold (The)

Live At The Queen Elizabeth Hall
An extremely rare live recording of the scaffold in 1968 when they were top of the charts, this album has been long deleted and never before released on CD The Scaffold emerged from Liverpool's early 1960s bohemian scene, the same environment that had nurtured the Beatles. The McCartney brothers linked the two, Paul's younger brother Mike, under the pseudonym McGear, teaming up with entrepreneur John Gorman and poet Roger McGough in 1963,Britain's most famous poet whose book of sixties beat poetry "the mersey sound" has sold an unprecedented one million copies. Their stage show, fusing softly satirical sketches with music hall bawdiness, was a hit at the Edinburgh Festival and formed the basis for several successful tours through the rest of the decade. The Scaffold enjoyed the Christmas number one in 1968 with "Lily The Pink", perhaps the most famous of all novelty songs. They had four other hits including "Thank U Very Much" which reached number 4 on the hit parade, a live version of which is included here. The Scaffold's versatile output during the boom years of UK pop culture stands as a testimony to the qualities of a long-vanished age.
