Is this the greatest name ever of a group:


If not it must be close. The background seems to be that the sound is that of a penny whistle and the band leader was a Aaron 'Big Voice" Jack Lerole from South Africa. Sadly he died in 2003. The record came out in 1958 and was the theme for a TV show which brought it to the attention of the public. It went on to sell about 3 million copies but whether the musicians ever got a lot of money out of it is debated.
