Scafell Pike: Lord's Rake

Bob Woffinden, New Musical Express, 4 January 1975

SCAFELL PIKE ARE a four-piece, three guitars and piano, who confine themselves to British traditional song and seem to specialise in sea shanties. Given that, and the presence of tracks such as 'The Roast Beef Of Old England', it's ironic to discover they were formed in Sweden.

Total word count of piece: 486
