BLINKERS Goodnight Blinkers (Extremely rare 1967 UK solid centre private press 7" vinyl single, also including Hello Blinkers. This 7" was reportedly penned by Graham Gouldman at the request of Tom McHugh, the manager of the club, for use as a theme tune. Recorded at Strawberry Studio, this disk also features Lol Creme & Kevin Godley, although no credits are given on the disc itself. The 'Blinkers' club was an exclusive 'A' list celebrity watering hole during the sixties in Manchesterthat George Best liked so much that he bought the building above it to turn into a boutique. The discs were only available to people that frequented the club, either to buy or as gifts, and very very few have survived the last forty five years. This particular copy was purchased directly from Tom McHugh himself & is accompanied by a 5" x 6" original invite to his Birthday Party on January 12th where the disc was debuted. This disc has now become legendary among Graham Gouldman and 10c.c. collectors for even pre-dating Frabjoy & Runcible Spoon as a record of the band's history. This copy is one of just a few that we know of that have survived. Although there may be a few more lost in some Mancunian attic, we somehow doubt it. This was an exclusive to the Club, only likely to be picked up by 'A' list celebrities & therefore unlikely to be treated with the reverance it is due as a piece of modern musical history. This copy has certainly been played and may indeed have been the very copy that ushered the guests into that Birthday Party forty five years ago. It was obviously not pressed in a premium pressing plant either, but it is what it is. The vinyl would realistically be graded VG as it shows a degree of surface scuffing but plays through without fault and with an astonishing lack of any seriously obtrusive surface noise. It is suspected that the A-Side vocals are sung by Kevin Godley & the faster B-Side by Lol Creme. As a piece of music history, it is rare. As a piece of 10c.c. history, it is rare. As a piece of Graham Gouldman songwriting, it is rare. As a piece of sixties 7" plastic, it is rare. You get the picture. We've never even been close to having one of these before in thirty years of scouring the world for vinyl gems, we may get another one in thirty years time but it won't have the invite or the provenance. If you are thinking twice about this, decide quickly as we are unlikely to get another before I'm pushing up daisies!).
