Professor Wurzel's Disc Notes:

The last single to be issued by The Wurzels in the 1980s, this was issued on the Far End label, manufactured and distributed by Spartan Records. Little is known about the record, but it is believed to have been produced as a promotional item for the Weston-Super-Mare tourist board. The single came in a picture sleeve showing a seaside scene with donkeys on the beach, sandcastles and the pier. The reverse of the sleeve has the lyrics to the song letting you sing along as you listen to the instrumental version of the song on the b' side of the record!

Shortly after, the band also produced the same single in cassette form. This now very rare release featured the same 'A' side as the vinyl but differed in that it was a double 'A' side - the additional track being a version of 'All Fall Down' - first released in 1986 - all about the perils of cider drinking. This new version is slightly different from the original single being a little faster, lighter and with more emphasis being placed on the instruments.

This single release was the last made with Mike Gwilliam as part of the band.
