  1. An album that I'm very proud and happy to own on vinyl. Loved it as a kid (one of my dad's mates who I thought was dead cool used to play it all the time) and I finally got my own pristine copy in the mid 80s as a riposte to some flatmates who only knew and hated the 'I Just Called To Say I Love You' era.
