Rare Chris Hamill Single

December 6, 2010

Back in 1981, before he’d changed his name to ‘Limahl’, a young chap called Chris Hamill released a singled called ‘Angel’ with a B-Side called ‘Goodnight Sleep’.

This very rare single actually turned on on eBay last week and fetched a good price.  Well done to the lucky buyer!!

New Information!! Added 12th December 2010

That lucky buyer was ‘Steve AKA theraggedtiger’ and he has sent me photos of the single, including the mysterious previously unseen by many, back cover!  Enjoy:




Huge thanks to Steve for sharing these photos.

    Where did you get that?
    I have been searching for years for a copy, in fact I started to believe it didn’t esist.
    You lucky lucky thing, i’m jealous….but very happy for you and to finally see a copy.

      This one isn’t mine, it was on eBay last week and finished yesterday evening. It fetched a good price and I had thought it would sneak through as the seller hadn’t mentioned Limahl anywhere in the listing 🙂

    I was that lucky buyer, Steve. I think that I beat Denny to it (sorry Denny).

    I will post some more detailed photos when the item arrives!

      Great news, it’s brilliant that it’s come to one of us 🙂

      I was watching it for days and wondered if it might slip through for a good price but when I saw where it was headed, I figured a bidding war was already in progress and I’d step aside and leave them to it!!

      Will look forward to seeing more photos, especially the back cover which remains a mystery!!

    I really like the design and artwork on the sleeve…done by hand too it seems.
    Distributed by Spartan which were the distributers for all of Tik and Tok’s records. 🙂
