The Wurzels With Tony Blackburn

"I Am A Cider Drinker 2007"
b/w "Ferry To Glastonbury"

This was the nineteenth - and final - 7" 45rpm vinyl single released by The Wurzels. It was released on 23rd April 2007 on the EMI Gold record label, catalogue number 3926537 on yellow vinyl - the last vinyl record released by The Wurzels. The single was released as part of the promotions for The Wurzels 'Greatest Hits' album released on May 7th. It was simultaneously released as a CD single.

The Band:

At the time of the recording of this single The Wurzels consisted of Pete Budd, Tommy Banner, John Morgan and Jai Howe.

The Tracks:

This release saw The Wurzels joined by Tony Blackburn on the 'A' side with I am A Cider Drinker. The 'B' side was taken from the Taste Of The West CD re-recording of Ferry To Glastonbury. Both tracks were produced by part-time Wurzel Louie Nicastro.

A promotional music video was produced to accompany this single and can be viewed here.

Disc and Label Variations:

The examples below are taken from the collection of Professor Wurzel and represent what a collector should expect to find. Generally The Wurzels' vinyl single releases from 1975 onwards tended to have an initial pressing run and were then taken off the catalogue. Matrix, Mother and Stamper codes were still used on the vinyl and the information centred around Adge's 1960's recordings that can be found on the Main Menu under 'Vinyl Collecting Guides' remains relevant (with minor changes between different record labels).
