Una Paloma Blanca vs I am a Cider Drinker
George Baker Selection - Una Paloma Blanca
George Baker (born Johannes Bouwens, 8 December 1944, Hoorn, Netherlands) is a Dutch singer and songwriter. He was the lead singer of the pop musical ensemble, George Baker Selection. He is now a solo artist.
Their fifth album Paloma Blanca was released in 1975, and the single "Paloma Blanca" reached #1 in the charts in several countries.
The Wurzels - I Am A Cider Drinker
The Wurzels perform one of their hit singles "I am a cider drinker" in their west country UK way.
The band with a Somerset twang had a hit single with this tune in '76.
Introduction is done by two Arrows band members, guitarist Terry Taylor, and the group's chronically eccentric singer Alan Merrill.
The Wurzels (originally Adge Cutler and the Wurzels but renamed The Wurzels after Adge Cutler's death) are a British Scrumpy and Western band. This Somerset based band is best known by many people for its 1976 number one hit "The Combine Harvester", but has a history stretching over 40 years, and still performs to this day.
