    You're right. It's a fine record if you just ignore "Two Princes." Actually has some decent tracks aside from that one.

    Like other things, anything beyond my first from that long ago is a little fuzzy in my memory.

    First one I saw was The Joshua Tree in 1987 which was a prize in a promotion the music mag I was working for was running. Didn't know anyone with a CD player and all the review copies we got of albums were vinyl. Pretty sure the first one I bought was The Clash's debut.

    Anyone looking for more info on the history of the CD is urged to check out Appetite for Self-Destruction by Steve Knopper which traces its development. Can't recall if it explains why they cost so fucking much when to buy when the production costs were a fraction of what it cost to make a vinyl album.
