1983 when MTV actually helped talented people, played their promo videos and put some money in bands bank accts. Big Country definitely had the songs, and as a 13 year old kid, hooked me with the Big Country video way back when the "New Wave" was new. Those ATVS were cool...ha ha ha.

Was the green sleeve later released March 1984, or re-released (i.e. issued again) March 1984?
