this record got me into the world of rough trade records beginning of the 80ies. It changed my attetude to punk music these days when I listened to it at a friends house more than 30 years ago. I immidiately copied first several then in the end all of the tracks on various tapes i still owe and listen to. "At Last I am Free" opend my heard to a new form of ballads how I 've never had heard befor

A life changing experience for me, and essential document of the era that shows the breadth of the RT aesthetic of the time and how inclusive things were before the modern era of fractured scenes.

I ended up buying nearly all these 7"s and it affected me so much that, to this day, my company's fax machine prints "Wanna Buy A Bridge" on every fax it sends out.
