    This is Pink Vinyl, not red. Nice selection of tracks, some I had never heard before, some bad choices though, "Planet Claire" sounding like a bad b side version of Peter Gunn does not fit nicely after the slick electro pop of Propaganda : Dr Mabuse, terrible, jarring !
    Great quality record though silent vinyl and loud music !
