Here’s a cassette version of debut album, ‘Cake’, all the way from Bangkok.

There’s not much to say about it though. The tape and the inner J-card is much different from the regular release as you would expect. I can’t imagine it would have been released in any great quantities in Thailand.

Nice all the same.

Here’s the 7″ vinyl of debut single ‘Obscurity Knocks’ – all the way from the outback.

Identical front and back cover to the regular UK release with the exception of the London Records logo, whilst the centre labels are altogether, entirely different.

Oh! I Do Like To Be Beside The B-Side

From the outside it looks like the regular 7-inch release doesn’t it?

But you’d be wrong.

Slide out the vinyl and you discover that the B-side label is also the A-side label – I believe the man from the pressing plant got his P45 after this discovery.

I’m not sure if the A-side does in fact play ‘Only Tongue Can Tell’ – the old Dansette disnae work anymore – but I’m sure it does.

Anyhoo, a nice wee rarity – tiddely-om-pom-pom!

2-track US cassette of debut single ‘Obscurity Knocks’, with ‘Who’s He?’ on side two.

Rarer than a big woolly mammoth.

Cake Anyone?

Everyone loves Cake, but I think I may have overdone it.

It wasn’t until I bought the new super-duper, hi-res, super high material version that I realised I have six copies of the debut album. Overkill maybe, but you can never have enough Cake right?

Included here are the US, Canadian, UK releases and three from Japan – two of which include six extra tracks.

Now, when is that new re-release coming out again?
