The Midweek Hop - Harvest Home

The other half's guest post - three songs on a theme...
(inspired by Desmond Carrington's 'The Music Goes Round')
 
 
'Balami I200' 1957 Jukebox

 
This weeks theme is...Harvest Home
 
 
Inspired by the current "gather in the crops" season here in Somerset and across the UK
 
 
 
1. Pick A Bale of Cotton by Lonnie Donegan


Originally sung by Lead Belly, Lonnie put his own spin on an old southern classic.
'Pick A Bale of Cotton' entered the chart on 16th August 1962 reaching Number 11.


2. Harvest For The World by The Isley Brothers


Is it ironic that a song about ending world hunger became synonymous with a ubiquitous restaurant chain?
'Harvest For The World' entered the chart on 10th July 1976 reaching Number 10..


3. Combine Harvester by The Wurzels


Well, we had to have this, didn't we?
'Combine Harvester' entered the chart on 15th May 1976 reaching Number 1.


Happy listening!
