While, technically, not the original version of this traditional English folk song, it is among the most commercially successful and popular recordings. It is also the title cut from a reunion album that started out as a solo project for the band’s keyboard playing singer and co-founder. It would become one the English band’s best selling records.
This eccentric and progressive band also dabbled in traditional folk music and was best known for their lead singer’s flute playing and crazy stage antics. They would first play this song live in Athens, Greece in 1992 as part of a semi acoustic tour.
