I remember this album well from my childhood days. Having listened to it dozens of times, I have developed a somewhat strange hypothesis about it.

I believe that the A-side and B-side of this album were mixed up. In the current version, the first song of the album is Circus Show, and Ding-Dong is the 8th song (or the first song of the B-side). I find this song arrangement hard to believe, given that Ding-Dong is clearly the most famous song of the album (Eurovision winner). So my hypothesis is that originally the makers of the vinyl LP had imagined Ding-Dong to be the opening song of the album but the A- and B-sides were mixed up somewhere in the process. In the 1970s it didn’t make much difference because vinyl records were the main source of music back then. But later, as cassettes and CD-s came along, it actually became quite important, which of the two sides of the record is A and which is B. And so the incorrect ordering was carried on to the CD version of Teach In, The Festival. I have no documentary evidence that anything like that happened, I have deduced my hypothesis solely from listening to the album so many times.

Now, you might ask, what difference does it possibly make? I think it does make a difference. The order of songs on the album is an important part of any music album. It’s not just putting them in some random order. Good musicians wouldn’t do that to their creation. So my advice is, if you happen to listen to this album, reverse the order of songs so that Ding-Dong would be the first one and all other songs follow from there.
