    When I first saw the post Paul, I thought immediately of “Flesh For Fantasy” by Billy Idol. My eyes aren’t very good as it is “Idol” by Flesh For LuLu (Big Smile ;-D). I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you diving into this band’s discography for me. I have really enjoyed all the postings you’ve provided so far for this group. You really have a talent for choosing fantastic pieces of vinyl for all music fans out in the Cyber-Verse. You definitely are my IDOL!!!

    Thank you Jeff I have really enjoyed listening to this band again. They were very underrated. Sadly we lost guitarist and vocalistt Nick Marsh in June of 2015.

    Thanks for the FLAC recordings Paul. I had only recorded this in 320 when I posted it, and sadly now I don’t have the vinyl to re-record it (sold), so this is a welcome treat!
