  2. That’s actually pretty good. When I saw it was by Rolf Harris I thought it would be more like “Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport”.

    OMG! We had this album when I was a kid in the mid 60s! I used to listen to it all the time.Wow, does that bring back memories.

    Kate Bush did a tribute to this song in 1982 (not a cover version as such, but still a close homage) with Rolf himself performing on the track, though he doesn’t appear in this VERY Eighties video for it:

    • I don’t see how The Dreaming is a homage to this song, apart from the fact that both feature Rolf playing didgeridoo. If you are making didgeridoo music in the UK you pretty much have to go to Rolf Harris anyway.

    Alice Cooper, of all people, introduced me to this song.

    Reminds me of the good old days, way back in 1975, when The Goodies hunted Rolf Harrises for their Star Safari Park.

    Engineered by Geoff Emerick  – DO NOT ask me about Rolf’s occult links to William Burroughs and the Situationists (clue: via the Beatles)…

    The Godfathers did a great version of this, as well.
