I loved the story, which came my way indirectly via Mudcat, of Sandy Denny - when in Fotheringay - reacting to repeated demands for "Banks of the Nile" by calling out at the end "So you want Banks of the Nile?" before launching into "Memphis Tennessee"*

What other totally off-the-wall encores have Mudcatters come across? I imagine Steeleye Span will more than once have done "Rag Doll" or "To Know Him Is To Love Him", but these were songs already associated with the band through inclusion on albums.

Salut! Live

* without knowing, according to Jerry Donahue, who was in Fotheringay, that Memphis Tennessee took its name from Memphis on the Nile, which is a bit of shame.

I have an off-air recording of Steeleye Span doing (half of) Hello Mary Lou - don't think they ever put THAT on an album
