I guess I can understand why this one was somewhat slept on in the US but blew up in the UK.. a superbly produced/rapped/scratched cut that tells the hip hopified story of a Camelot, knights & damsels etc.. I mean, why wouldn't it have? The only thing they missed off was the Knights riding off into the sunset with a cup of tea and biscuits.

It may sound cheesy in retrospect, but that would be a mistake in my opinion, take it for what it is; a very inventive, imaginative and fun piece of unsung hip hop history. If Monty Python made a hip hop track, well, it would probably would have not sounded like this, but the premise definitely tips a knights hat to them all the same. A minor work of genius and an all time favourite.

Right, I'm off to put the kettle on...

The demand for this one has declined over the years, but was really high in the mid-90s. I personally never heard the track in 1985, but if I had, I probably would have liked it. It's pretty typical for the time.
