  1. Beat About the Bush

    Beat about the Bush is a 1994 studio album by English acoustic roots duo Show of Hands. It is their debut studio album to be released on CD, following the discontinued cassette albums that are Show of Hands from 1987, Tall Ships from 1990 and Out of the Count from 1991. Following Mike Trim's successful recording engineer work on Show of Hands Live, the joint vision on Beat About the Bush was to produce the elusive "radio friendly" folk/roots album that retained the band's live album whilst adding a rhythm section. Steve Knightley said in 2007 "lots of friends were drafted for the sessions and after one boozy late night with Ralph McTell [the duo] were in no state to face the cameeras for the CD cover shot the next day. The suggestion to cover [the duo]'s faces with instruments came from George Wright, the photographer and save the world from a sorry spectacle. However, despite Mike's best efforts, radio reaction was minimal and another ten years were to pass before we dipped our toes once more into the world of bass and percussion." The track "The Galway Farmer" would later be a staple on every live performance by the duo. It is one of the band's better known tracks, and would end up being on various other albums in different recordings The song "Day Has Come" would be completely re-arranged for future live performance. "The Oak" has continued to be played live amongst other songs on the album, including the tradition "Blue Cockade".
