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