What a cool stroll down memory lane (funny how music does that, no?)...
Recently, I picked up mint LP's of The Outfield - Play Deep and Hooters - Nervous Night. I still have my original cassettes of both as well of the horrible CD transfers. Now, the LP's aren't all that either but are superior to the other formats.
I tell you what though, spinning those, hell, I'm right back in the summer of 1986 (both albums actually came out in 1985). I would never want to go back in time, but I'd spend a week back in the summer of '86.
