    The first of many silly b-side songs! The song is quite funny but it could be better music-wise.

    It's great...I think.

    The song's pretty good, but could be better. You've gotta love Ol' Brucey, though. His impression of Rod is really great.

    Yes, another day, another classic song commented on by me.

    Anyway. Sheriff of Huddersfield is not great musically but as a laughable kind of thing does perfectly (kinda like "Bayswater..." + "Nodding Donkey...")

    Just got the Urchin album High Roller, which includes "Life in the City", which is the music used for Huddersfield.  They stuck quite close to the original with the exception of removing an instumental section in the middle

    Are any of the Urchin releases on official CD?

    I am afraid not. If I am correct, bearfan only buys vinyl (or hardly CD's for that matter).

    I usually buy either vinyl or mp3/FLAC when possible. Cannot think of the last time I bought a CD --- I prefer the sound of Vinyl/it makes me get up to flip the record over at home and mp3 are much easier when on the road.

    Back to on topic, the same place I bought the Vinyl has this on CD

    I get really some different inspiration whenever I hear this song...

    Sheriff of Huddersfield is an inspired bit of silliness in which Bruce mimics and mocks Maiden’s manager, Rod Smallwood, who had recently moved to Los Angeles and apparently never stopped whining about it. It’s fun, but the in-joke grows old upon repeated listens.
