Dawn, you found the import Lp cover, very cool. I have the very rare (now) Mobile Fidelity Lp. This is a landmark Lp. My friend jan who works for Roland got to know the band well. How well.?He had the whole band over to his place (which at the time was a 2 bedroom apt in Alhambra , CA) yes I was invited ,but I was not going to the concert nor a member of the fan club (The Long Distance Voyager)sso I thought it best not to go.

I did get to hang out with the bands producer Tony Visconti at a New Years Party later, but thats another long story.

Paul, I think I would have gone to the party.. Although.. How many people can you fit into a 2 bedroom apt.? :I

I would love to hear about your New Years Party, with Tony Visconti.

Your (rare)album sounds like a wonderful treasure..

I remember the first time I played it for Jon and his wife Debbie, she broke down saying there are things that she had never heard before, which coming from a classical trained cellist that thought she knew this album inside out was really something.
I'll have to think about sharing all of the New Years Party ,some amazing stuff went down that night.

I can tell you that Tony later on got fed up with the Moody Blues and would not work with them again which is sad because He produced some of their later best work.

Great stuff... You know, I love to read a good classic rock story.
