Thanks for the replies,
I don't think thats the issue, I have an S4 and trying to use "recovery-clockwork--touch-126.96.36.199-ville.img". The interesting thing is the latest TWRP works and so does "recovery-clockwork-touch-188.8.131.52-ville.img". I've also tried a bunch of other images including non-touch.
Additionally, the above process to get to the recovery is the usual process I take and therefore doesn't make a difference. Thanks for the suggestion.
