More Info:

Hokey Pokey, Richard and Linda's 2nd album together, is a jollier release than its predecessor. Richard was a fan of Harry Lauder and Gracie Fields, and this inspiration can be seen in the Victorian style cover art, and audible on both the title track and `Georgie On A Spree'. It is a mixture of darkly comical songs like `Smiffy's Glass Eye' and the wearier tones of `I'll Regret It All In The Morning" and "A Heart Needs A Home". Songs like `The Egypt Room' are more somber. 180-gram vinyl.
