Stuff We Sell

Finally gave up trying to find a copy of the CD (moved too slow on a used copy listed at $18 or so) and paid for the download. Forgot how amazing Plays for Lovers is. This record is absolutely foundational in my life.
Sad that Manic Depression is gone but happy to get Wars in Space, a song that helped me to see the hypocrisy of my ways.
Fred's guitar work is amazing throughout, RIP.
