Why did a copy sell for £86? Something special about it?

I agree but the charts in the early 80s were amazing. Yes there was dross but there was also pure gold. You watch just about any episode if TOTP prior the 85 and the line ups were incredible.

Totally agreed. In a time when most albums are in gatefold when not required, this really needed one. The printed inners are good though and the vinyl is nice. Most importantly, it is a good album, he's not written songs of this quality in a while.

Agreed it is of the it's time unfortunately, lots of bands suffered. Nice that they did it lots of different colours just to add to the pain. They did not really improve over the next releases either.

Does anyone know how this differs from the US picture disc please?

It feels like thick PVC with an envelope flap. Mine was split on arrival! How do you differentiate Mylar?

Folks trying to sell this for £60 already!. Go to HMV, my local had stacks of them.

Totally agree, after AYNIN Paper Gods was a huge let down, felt very patched together with a few decent tracks. Some fans rave about it mind you but I think they would go crazy over Simon's answerphone.

Described as a one-off and 2 people on here have it! Nice.

Wow what a great album. Shame it will be overlooked by all but hardcore fans. Also a shame my vinyl has a pressing flaw so it's going back.

Great idea numbering them, why don't HMV insist on that for all their Vinyl week releases?

Available for £18 from Sainsbury's in the UK and someone on here has it listed for £80 on the day of the release! Maybe worth it if it was signed......

Kind of a disappointing silver, more like swirly grey. Nice GFold sleeve and inner though.

When I used discogs to scan the barcode on mine it correctly uploaded as the blue vinyl. I don't have a black vinyl to see if that identifies correctly.

I cannot believe I bought all 5, plus the poster sleeve, plus the various 12s. No wonder they fell out over money, the whole band sold the records.

Also came with the injection label version of the disc.

Is it this one you're after, also with injection labels.

Unsealed mine today, badly crunched up inner (it was the way it was inserted) and a nice little warp on the disc. Where is the quality control?

Just found a copy and enjoying it very much. This era of his career is interesting and gradually I am getting the discs.

Wonderful eclectic album. She is the stand out track but it is backed up by some emotional stunners. I have now decided Charles is a Gallic cross between Sinatra and Neil Diamond.
