Professor Wurzel's Disc Notes:

A song about the perils of smoking. According to Pete Budd it was recorded as part of an anti-smoking campaign. It has never appeared on any subsequent Wurzel releases. The ‘b' side appeared on the 1983 ‘Freshly Cut' album. Once again, like the ‘a' side track, it has not appeared since.

This single is the first on which drummer John Morgan appears - and he is still going strong with the band!

Band line-up (not credited on disc):

Tommy Banner, Pete Budd, Tony Baylis, John Morgan


Producer: Richard de Silva
