Don't Know Why is a song that is featured on The Rutles Archeology 1 album.

BackgroundEdit

The song was originially recorded in 1977 by Ron Nasty as a home demo, but it wasn't released at the time, due to its sudden disappearance in 1979 down the back of a sofa. In 1995, Stig O'Hara and Barry Wom were looking for another track to put onto The Rutles Archeology 1 album, preferably a song by Ron Nasty that they hadn't released yet. Their problem was solved when Chastity, Nasty's wife, came round to the recording studio to give them the unreleased casette tape from 1977 that she found down the back of the sofa.

RecordingEdit

Dirk, Stig and Barry then took that tape and recorded each of their vocals on top. They then asked Jeff Lynne, frontman of Eccentric Lice Orchestra, to produce the track. The Rutles' recorded another unreleased song during these sessions, but Jeff accidentally dropped his jar of lice, and the studio had to be evacuated, with the song remaining unfinished since.
