Original Womble Albums

There were four Womble songs originally released in records and cassette. I have some info on a few of these albums, and most of the lirics. I have also added a few WAV files here and there. These are clips of the songs. The wav files are converted from PCM to MP3 which uses less space for better quality.

  • Note: Some old systems may not play the WAV files on this page. This is because they do not have the audio compression MP3 drivers installed. There are two ways in which the problem can be addressed:

  1. 'Windows Sound Recorder' will be able to play these if the audio compression drivers are installed from the Windows 95/98 CD. The drivers are only 0.2mb so you don't have to worry about space.

  2. A better method is to install the updated version of 'Windows Media Player'. Media Player supports most local and streamed multimedia file types including WAV, MP3, AVI, QuickTime, and RealAudio 4.0 and RealVideo 4.0. There a few different versions available for different opeating systems. The full new version for Windows 95/8 including one for machines with Internet Explorer 4 installed and one for machines without. There is also the latest beta version of the player for Windows 3.x users. While this has proved stable on most machines, this is no guarantee that it will not cause any problems. Media Player can be obtained for free at: http://www.microsoft.com/

Image map of Womble Album Links. From the top, Wombling Songs, Remember You're A Womble, Keep On Wombling and Superwombling.

Wombling Songs, Remember Your A Womble and Keep On Wombling were available to buy boxed together. The original covers and lyric sheets were not included, but a poster, lyric/colouring book and badge were included. It was released in 1974.

In 1976, 'Womble Stories' was released on to cassette and record. There were six stories read by Bernard Cribbins. The stories were also available in a picture book written by Ernst Benn. It contained no songs so I technically it should be in its own section, like I'm gonna make a page with two lines on it :) The stories on the album were:

  • The MacWomble's Pipe Band
  • The Snow Womble
  • Tomsk And The Tired Tree
  • Orinoco Runs Away
  • Wellington And The Blue Balloon
  • Madame Cholet's Picnic Party.
