  1. Wow, I owned this back in the 80s, but it got lost in a move. Looked for it for a long time, thanks a million! Love the Escaping from a maze track! Cheers!

  2. Heh.

    I picked up this album at a flea market for next to nothing a few years ago. Today was the first time I took the record out for a spin.
    I didn't even know what to expect, but it turned out to be one of the best electro pop albums I've ever heard.

    The fact that this is a rare album just adds a small bonus to the whole experience. :D

  3. Hi....I just wanted to send a massive thank you for making this amazing album available. I had a copy (sadly lost many years ago) on cassette back in 1981 when it first came out, and have been trying to get a digital version for a long time now. It was one of the few albums that I'd never been able to find, and now I'm able to enjoy it all over again....and such a good quality rip. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
