"Around The Old Camp Fire" is a nostalgic anecdotal tale of being a boy scout, singing songs and eating fairy cakes whilst sitting around the old camp fire "where the mushrooms used to grow and me muscles you to show". It's a splendid bit of harmless fun and an insanely catchy track to boot. It's a bit of a crime that it hasn't been reissued on some novelty compilation. The b-side - "I'm In Love With Angela Rippon" - is rather horrible and is twice the length of the superior a-side although it does feature the amusing line: "There's nowhere on Earth that I wouldn't take her - She's much nicer legs than Richard Baker." Note that the song chorus actually goes "We're in love with Angela Rippon" and not "I'm in love with Angela Rippon" which it is actually titled. For the record, I could never stand Angela Rippon - I was always more of an Anna Ford kinda guy.
