  1. What an amazing cover. Love it.

  2. an unique and fine presentation. When this came out I was deep into so much music (working in my first record store back then) that I missed it and this is why I love blogs like this that help me catch finds like this. Great.

  3. did some research on this album, and that is, grace jones, on the cover.
