Owned this album for 30 years now. One of the best debut albums of the 80's. Some superb songs on this album. Best ones to play over and over again are Love's Great Fears, Raintown, Dignity, When Will You (make my telephone ring) - 2nd fave!, The Very Thing and most of all my fave - Chocolate Girl. Bonus was to have a 'Free' LP of 11 more songs. Brilliant! Once valued back in the 90s in record Collector at £50 in Mint Condition, now hard to find with sleeve and both vinyls and in good condition. My copy probably worth about £25 now but would never sell it! Do yourself a favour if you see it - BUY IT!
