Post 350 - The Ferrets - Robin Hood / The Lemming Song

After favourable reactions from audiences in Melbourne and Sydney, The Ferrets produced a demo tape that caught the attention of Ian "Molly" Meldrum talent coordinator for the TV series Countdown. Meldrum had them signed to Mushroom Records and started producing their debut album, "Dreams of a Love", in July 1976. In April 1977 they released their debut single, "Robin Hood", which did not chart. Here to download is that single "Robin Hood" b/w "The Lemming Song" (K-6743), it was produced by Ian Meldrum at Armstrong’s Studios South Melbourne. This single and it's B side never made it onto "Dreams Of A Love". An interesting fact we have noticed is that on the label The Ferrets is spelled The Ferretts. We're not sure if this was a mistake or it was meant to be.
