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.

The Scaffold are probably best remembered for their musical recordings, yet on-stage in particular, they did not stick solely or primarily to one media, mixing in a lot of comedy and some poetry. This 1968 concert recording may thus be a more accurate representation of their work (and certainly their live performances) than more commonly circulating CD compilations, which emphasize their pop music recordings (which, of course, did contain a lot of comedy). That doesn't mean, however, that this is a better and more artistic document of their artistry than their music-oriented studio tracks. The majority of it's given over to sketches, dialog, and poetry, and there's sometimes the sense (especially in the dead-air pauses followed by laughter) that you're missing some visual information essential to getting the most out of the material. More problematically, the humor, while far from dumb, isn't rip-roaringly funny. It's gentle, mildly artsy satire with a genteel British restraint, occasionally punctuated by nudge-nudge sexual innuendo (and, in "Poem for National LSD Week," drug references) that are not just mild, but quaint. The recording quality isn't much help; while the spoken dialogue's easily audible, there's an echoing, distant quality that doesn't serve the material as well as it could. There is some music here, but not much, including a rather thin rendering of their big British hit "Thank U Very Much" and the far more comically intended drinking song "Ten Whiskey Bottles." Dave Mason of Traffic is credited with guitar and sitar, incidentally, though whatever he plays is extremely low-profile.
