Test Press Singles: Limahl and Kajagoogoo
Wednesday brings a double whammy of promotional vinyl. Team KajaFax are always really keen to discover new items, and as vinyl goodies are every collector’s items of preference we think these are a pair of real crackers! Both of today’s pieces are test press items and curious in their own way. First of all, we have this really cool Japanese pressing of Too Shy, housed in a generic die cut sleeve and ink stamped with the usual handling and care instructions. The plain white label and hand written track information really makes the point that this is something that was never intended for the public ownership…. A nice thing to own.

Finally, we move on to a similar UK test pressing for what was Limahl’s third solo single and international smash hit song ‘The Never Ending Story’.
This disc is not quite as ‘exotic’ – the yellow label holds details of the track held within as written by a previous owner in black biro. What makes this one interesting is the fact that it holds Limahl’s autograph, written in silver metallic pen. Of course, we have no way of knowing when it was signed or indeed if that signature is genuine or not!
Regardless of any of that, this remains a real collector’s piece for any fan of the band.
Thanks for visiting KajaFax and making us the #1 site for all things ‘Goo.
