Round Britain Rejects back again

Okay, here's one.

A Lawrentian betting aid; 
a Beatles' album before a family intervention; 
a hillbilly's tribute to the military; 
seventies popsters who went sky high. 

In what sort of concerto might you reasonably expect to find all of these and why?

    1 Rocking horse (winner) 2. Yellow Submarine 3. Weapon (of prayer) 4.Jigsaw

    A Lover's Concerto by... 'The Toys' which the above are for children.

  2. Sorry, it's 3 out of 6 at best. Think again about the Beatles - maybe you could double your efforts. The hillbilly is associated with an area of North London. Incidentally "black hills" feature in two separate songs which, if you identified them, would help you fill in those two missing parts of the answer.

    But well done on the rest!

    'Feel like going home' by Notting Hillbillies or 'Please Baby?' Beatles from The 'White Album' 'Mother Nature's son.' If not, I'll let someone else guess. Cheers, Brian

  4. Sadly, no. I will give it a week in case anyone else fancies their chances ...

  5. Can't wait for a week as clearly no one else is going to enter. The Beatles' double album aka The White Album was originally going to be called A Doll's House until the group Family released an LP of that name. Ray Davies could reasonably be called a Muswell Hillbilly; he identified himself as such in song. And on an earlier Kinks album there is a ditty entitled Tin Soldier Man. The song Muswell Hillbillies includes the line "Take me back to the black hills that I ain't never seen" and Macca's Rocky Racoon on the White Album refers to "The black mountain hills of Dakota."
