Professor Wurzel's Disc Notes:

'I Wish I Was Back On The Farm' was the third single to be released by Adge Cutler and his Wurzels - and was the first track he recorded that he had not written himself.
The song was originally sung by George Formby in his 1940 film Spare A Copper and although a foreign song (from north of Bristol!) it was considered an appropriate number for the band to perform. The title track - which is a 'live' recording, never appeared on an album in Adge's time (although it has appeared on several compilations since). Side 'b', 'Easton-In-Gordano', is taken from Adge's second album ('Adge Cutler & The Wurzels Family Album') - but the version on this single is slightly cleaner, particularly on the introduction.

Both tracks are still firm favourites and have been re-recorded several times since.

The images above show the single in the original 'green' Columbia sleeve and the vinyl disc details.
