Here is another version, by The King's Singers:

An old mystery solved: Binky's true name. This is quoted from the comments on YouTube.


MrTylerSlade: My Old man....Terry Slade on drums.....and my mum Binky Slade (then cullum) on vocals......brilliant


JimMcCartyandCo: Is your mum real name: Anne-Marie by any chance? ;-)

MrTylerSlade: It is indeed!

I'm sure some other sharp-eyed (or sharp-eared) Renaissance fan has observed this before, but I just realized it: The rock version of "Widdicombe Fair" heard on the DVD (with fewer lyrics and totally different music than the original folk song) is not original to Renaissance, but is in fact merely a cover of the version by The Nashville Teens!

From what I can tell that version was released in 1964, was credited to NT singer Ray Phillips, and features only one future Renaissance member (Hawken) -- though it seems likely enough that Dunford, Korner and/or Crowe may have performed it with the Teens at some point.
