…is how I would describe the condition of this 7-inch version of debut single ‘Obscurity Knocks’. Apart from a few crackles it still plays perfectly. You can’t beat vinyl!

Still one of my favourite TCS tracks which sadly, is played live all too often.

This CD was the third single from debut album ‘Cake’.

‘Circling The Circumference’ was backed with ‘My Mistake’ and ‘White Horses’ – an interpretation of the 1960’s ‘The White Horses’ TV series theme tune.

The solo on the title track is a cracker.

Rare 2-track US promo of debut single ‘Obscurity Knocks’. This release included both the single edit and the much longer album version.

Can’t say I’m a fan of the design on the actual CD – very cluttered don’t you think.

Here’s the European (German) release of debut single ‘Obscurity Knocks’.

All tracks are the same but the CD was released in a jewel case, rather than the card sleeve of the regular version.

Follow-up single to ‘Obscurity Knocks’. This is the 7-inch UK version and I’ve also included the Australian and German imports.

The printing on the imports is slightly different in that the text is more pink than red – see bottom pictures.
