The Landlord's Daughter

Album: The Wicker Man soundtrack (1973)


  • The studio recording of this bawdy drinking song runs to around 2 minutes 37 seconds. An edited version was performed live by a male chorus accompanied by a squeezebox and violin in the highly acclaimed 1973 off-beat detective/horror film The Wicker Man, for which it was composed.
  • "The Landlord's Daughter" is credited to New Yorker Paul Giovanni, although he appears to have based it loosely on an obscure 18th Century song. The soundtrack was not released until 2002. >>
