The CD

HMV Easy was an EMI-sourced budget label that had been launched in 1999 made exclusively available through HMV stores and their on-line outlet. This CD was typical in the style of this series in both the CD and case insert.

The insert as shown below was written by Paul Gunningham the author of the first Wurzel-devoted website, a site which has sadly sat effectively untouched since Paul's tragic death in 2007.

Collectors' Extras:

A promotional copy of an album is unusual - this example came in the standard case with insert with a 'promotional copy not for sale' sticker on the outside of the case
