The very first Mansun vinyl release pressed by EMI in 1995. This is the 7″ promo of Take It Easy Chicken. It plays the same track both sides. Two copies are shown here , one was Paul Draper’s own copy with the sleeve signed to me after i acquired the record from a collector. The second copy looks in better condition with plain sleeve which i bought from a German dealer. Only a ‘handful’ were made and is very collectable.
