  • Notes:
    • Unfortunately, this single is undated.
    • The label states:
      • "Arrangement by Will Millar from the album 'INSIDE FOLK SONGS' – Atlantic 8072," — which was an album by Shel Silverstein, released in 1962.
    • Considering that several sources have stated that Will sang "the Unicorn" on his Saturday morning Children's T.V. show, it could have been recorded as early as 1963.
    • The recording quality is not great and the musical/instrumental arrangement is very simple — guitar & harmonica — which leads me to believe it is indeed, pre-Irish Rovers.
    • One last tidbit, on this recording Will says " silly Unicorn", not " sally Unicorn".
