Thread Name: Jamboree: Oat Cakes?
Subject: RE: BS: Jamboree:Oat Cakes?
I understood the "oatcakes" version was introduced by the Spinners (Liverpool folk group who appeared a lot on the telly in Britain back when I watched telly). The original versions obviously couldn't be sung on the telly. So Hughie Jones tells me, anyway. (Hughie was one of the Spinners, now singing solo. First time I saw him live, I was amazed he was in colour - I'd only seen him in black and white before!)
