Because it's cool.

There were some other 10" oddball New Wave

I always thought this was a pseudonym until I saw his obituary. "Luring You To Me" is a perfect name for an album cover designer!

Well, all I can say is this entry matches my copy exactly, found in Southern California in the 1990's and sitting in what looked ot be a rarely-touched personal collection.

Great set of heartfelt, gritty covers. 2nd LP in this edition features the original versions of each tune as recorded by Blind Willie Johnson.

Mastering is very dynamic, with lovely quiet vinyl. A first-class package.
