Is the rock group called The Darling Buds still around?

Cleo Laine's release "Wordsongs" include many of Shakespeare's "songs"
set to jazz.  It also has Cleo singing "The Complete Works of
Shakespeare" and "The Dunsinane Blues."  Lots of fun!

Is this just a catalogue, or does it actually have the settings?  From
the title is seems to be a catalogue, but if it's five volumes, it must
have *something* besides titles and composers.  By the way:  Today is my
birthday.  (Not relevent at all, but I was thinking that if the
*Shakespeare Music Catalogue* had settings, I might want it as a
birthday present.)  This is a catalogue of all pre-1640 SHAKSPERian
musical settings I can think of off the top of my head (many of them I
can only *think* of:  I can't recall the tune at all):
"It Was a Lover and His Lass"    Thomas Morley
"O Mistress Mine"                Thomas Morley
"O Mistress Mine"                William Byrd
"Lawn as White as Snow"          John Wilson [of "Iacke Wilson" fame]
"Full Fathom Five"               Robert Johnson
"Where the Bee Sucks"            Robert Johnson
                                 Robert Downes
