    The vinyl weight of the pressing is very light therefore susceptible to surface damage. Kid gloves recommended for handling and storage.

        Clap Hands includes lyrics from an old clapping song also used in Shirely Ellis' 1965 Clapping Song

          Great west German pressing. Sounds great even at such a length.
