I never knew "Hunting Tigers Out In In-diah" by the Bonzo Dog Band was a cover of somebody else's song.(Well, I guess ya learn something new everyday.)
Indeed many of the Bonzos early songs were covers of old 78's that Viv Stanshall and the others found in junk shops. A nice CD was released a couple of years ago which highlighted some of the best HERE.
Thanks for the information re: "Songs The Bonzo Dog Band Taught Us"(I downloaded a copy of it.) I had seen that title ("Songs The Bonzo Dog Band Taught Us")in the past and thought it was just a compilation Bonzo recordings.Now if I could just track down a (free) MP3 of their version of "Suspicion".For some reason it wasn't on their 2 disc compilation "Cornology" (which I have).A video of The Bonzos performing ""Hunting Tigers Out In In-diah"(Introduced by Terry Jones)http://youtu.be/ZNmL1L3dF6g"Later,KD
Glad to be of help. No idea where to find "Supicion". Good hunting (in India or elsewhere!) Thanks for the link.
I did another search and found "Suspicion".http://togrool.com/download-bonzo-dog-band-suspicion-826667.xhtmlThe spoken word part of the song is pretty funny.Almost as good as "Wrestle Poodles... And Win! " from "Mr Apollo"Later,KD
