  3. Fantastic track, and the album's none too shabby either.

    So many memories of listening to this in my late teens.

    But the other two LP's were so damn poor in comparison to this.

  4. One, I think the second album is pretty good too, but the first is definitely the best. I plan to post all three

  8. well, I've been planning on something even earlier. I've got all the Ryko gold discs and have only posted one so far: "Low" in the Eno series. It might be time for some black country rock

  9. I hated this song with a passion at the time - idealistic youth! But without the buzzcockian noise you can really appreciate the quality of the songwriting.
