Strangely, over the weekend I've been listening to this slice of brilliance for the first time in ages:
April must be 'I heart 1985' in Casa Stapleton.
What a great album. Reminded me tonight, listening as I ironed, of Bowie's 'Low' - both have an A side chock-full of genius left-field pop and a B side that's rather different and slightly more involving. Both albums probably wouldn't offer the same experience on cd.
Reading today's posts got me thinking about 1985 - some sort of 'annus mirabilis' for quality long players?
'A secret wish'
'Hounds of love'
'Parade' - Prince
'Don't stand me down' - Dexy's Midnight Runners
'Stella' - Yello
Oh, and The Cult, natch.
