Record of The Week: Blondie: AutoAmerican 1980 NM JAPANESE LP + OBI/INSERT/POSTER/STICKER

 

Debbie Harry was my first crush (as she was of most boys in the late ’70s) and, looking at this album – and especially the poster enclosed, has brought back all those fantastic boyhood memories. My Brother had a poster of her on our bedroom but I like to think that I ‘enjoyed’ it more…

40 years after those first forays into, ahem, ‘romance’ Debbie Harry still holds a very special place in my heart – I still hold out a little bit of hope that the Debbie Harry of the ‘Heart of Glass’ video will come over, throw me over her shoulder and drag me away to her pad…

I’ve had less achievable dreams to be honest, although not many…

Oh yeah – this is a lovely copy of a Japanese pressing with all the innards enclosed and so I should really talk more about that but, to be honest, memories of her are much sweeter than pontificating about the superior sound quality or the original unused sticker or the obi strip or the foldout lyric sheet.

…or the poster

 

…that I may end up keeping for myself.
