Black and White by Stranglers. Bought it from a record shop in Sidcup for £1.99. Around about 1980.
Still one of my favourite albums, still have my original 1978 copy but pretty much unplayable now.
I queued up outside HMV in Brighton for The Raven and got a copy with the 3D sleeve.
My stuff; Toshiba SR-370/Mission 774 /Ortofon Quintet Black, Cambridge CXC CD transport/modified Musical Fidelity X DAC/modified Musical Fidelity X10v3 tube buffer, Nakamichi CA5E preamp, Passive RVC, Proton AA-1150 DMC power amp ,Mordaunt Short Signifer on original factory stands, NVA LS5, Cambridge NP30 network player, Mogami with Neutrik RCA, Sennheiser HD650, 600, Koss Pro4 AA.
