No help required!

Here’s the very rare 12″ promo for debut single, ‘Obscurity Knocks’. A very simple piece with a big letter A on one side of the white labels – good effort Go! Discs.

The plain black sleeve comes complete with a promo label. And that’s about it really.

Except to say that the A side is inscribed with the legend, ‘Youthenasia’

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!

From the outside it looks like the regular 7-inch release of debut single ‘Obscurity Knocks’.

But when you slide the vinyl out – voilà – no labels!

All very strange.
