Keep your eye on Ebay both albums come up from time to time on Japanese CD and they're cheaper than Amazon.
There are also a couple of blogs out there that have both albums available for D/L.
I'll see you in the sewer!!!

Hi again


Thanks for all the replies.

It's the album RIDE AGAIN that I want to find on CD or download.

I played it a lot on vinyl when it was released.

Some great keyboard solos by Dave G.

Cheers

Darren
