Purchased Because Of The Cover

Bildergebnis für red guitars slow to fade

In 1984 I noticed an album at the new arrivals with a photograph showing British troops standing in front a spoiled flag at half-staff. In these days many of us joined the peace movement demonstrating against storing h-bombs in our country and I didn't felt much sympathy for the army. But this photograph has something devotional and I grabbed this one out to purchase. After this decision I realized that it was the first album by Hull's Red Guitars. Their first singles were one of those that was on my heavy rotation in these days. Still a very excellent album and worth to play from time to time.

Red Guitars - Remote Control
Red Guitars - Marimba Jive
