Fred Dagg

As well as being good for laughs, gentleman farmer Fred Dagg proved he had a singing voice from an early age. His 1975 debut album Fred Dagg's Greatest Hits – much of it recorded under duress in a single morning – sold thousands more copies than EMI executives expected. Five of the 20 tracks were musical, including the original version of the beloved 'We Don't Know How Lucky We Are'. A live tour and 1977 short film Dagg Day Afternoon fuelled further releases. Then Dagg went awol, possibly to Australia. A 1998 remake of "Don't Know How Lucky We Are' also involved Dagg, although this one inexplicably wore a suit.
