Professor Wurzel's Disc Notes:

This was Adge's follow-up single to his Somerset anthem 'Drink Up Thy Zider' - and as Adge maintained it was Somerset's answer to Lonnie Donegan's 1960 hit 'My Old Man's A Dustman'.

At first sight it appears that both tracks are taken his first album "Adge Cutler & The Wurzels". Whilst this is true for the 'b' side, the title track is in fact a studio recording - quite clean and fresh - quite possibly recorded during the EMI demo sessions in 1966.

The images above show the single in the original 'green' Columbia sleeve, the vinyl disc details and a 'demo' version of the disc produced for distribution to the radio and tv stations in the days leading up to the official release.
