Singng The Spirit Home, the 5 CD Eric Bogle Box set is available from Amazon of all places for 17 quid plus tax which brings it to £19.97 with free UK postage. Mine arrived this morning but I missed the postman by 5 minites as I was driving my son to his first game for the school footbal team (which they won 5-0)so I have to pick it up on Monday.

It is well worth the wait and the price. This is a fantastic collection. I reviewed it on www.rambles.net if you want to whet your appetite

Eric told me that EMI approached hi regarding the boxed set. He told them that he would only sanction it if he selected the tracts himself. So what you are getting in the boxed set is what Eric would release himself.

ENJOY!!!!!!

Aye, it's a good set, but they might have spent just a few pennies more on the CD boxes. 3 of my boxes had fallen apart within the first week I had them..

Best wishes,

Bente

A long time ago on a radio broadcast I heard Eric do a funny song about a chihuahua. I've never found the song or the lyrics anywhere. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

That'll be this one:

LITTLE GOMEZ

(Eric Bogle)

Oh, I used to have a doggie and I called him little Gomez

Because he was a Mexican Chihuahua

Though there wasn't much to him what there was all cojones

In fact he was a randy little fella big dogs, small dogs were all the same to him

The canine equivalent of Errol Flynn

At the drop of a sombrero he'd jump up and get stuck in

Taking Gomez out for walkies was embarassin'



I remember one day in the park his tally rose by four

An enviable score he was amassing, two very patient poodles and an Irish Labrador

And a woman who just happened to be passing

I tried every way to curb his carnal appetite

I kept him on a leash by day, I locked him up at night

I even put some bromide in his chunky meaty bites

But the only thing that might have worked was Kryptonite



Then came the fateful day when he tried to consummate

A liaison with a Saint Bernard from Dublin

And although he was quite clearly fighting well above his weight

He didn't let that minor detail stop him

He nearly pulled it off, oh, what an acrobat!

But the bitch got bored and down she sat

Well, they say that after making love you sometimes feel quite flat

I'm sure that little Gomez would agree with that



I buried Gomez in the park, his happy hunting ground a sad but fitting finale

Though I had to make a grave that was very flat and round

'Cause he looked like squashed tamale

But oh, how I missed my wee Chihuahua chum

I went down to the pet shop to find another one

I went there feeling happy, but I left there feeling glum

Because the man behind the counter loved corny puns



And he said "Yes, we have no Chihuahuas we have no Chihuahuas today

We have Alstations, Dalmatians, fruits of all flirtations,

An alpine Pekinese in a toupee

But yes, we have no Chihuahuas we have no Chihuahuas today"
