Song Note

In the 1960's a lot of Birmingham (UK) was being redeveloped and a lot of the older areas, especially around Aston, near Birmingham, had their older buildings pulled down. Amongst them were the favourite watering holes (pubs) of many people.

To commemorate their passing and to keep their names and memories of them alive, Ian Campbell re-wrote an existing old song Drink Old England Dry and called it Drink Old Aston Dry or The Aston Pub Crawl.
