... having never heard it before?
I've done it three times
1 Lime spiders Slave Girl Ep. I was blown away by the energy of the track 25th hour - wonderfully raucous!
2 I went into Andy's, the best record store in Norwich. It was some time early 80s and I had gone to buy the latest Deep Purple album. Purple Rain had just been released. I knew of Prince but he was of zero interest to me. Anyway, Darling Nikki came on and I loved it! I went to ask what the record was and was most surprised that it was Prince. Bought the album and still love it, one of the best releases from the 80s. Sadly, Prince was never that exciting again (for me). At the time I couldn't believe I was walking out with a Prince album!
3 I was up in the Jazz section of Tower records, probably late 80s, and they were playing the Afro celt sound system first album. I was wandering around browsing for about 20 minutes (wonderful record shop) and decided to buy it.
.... followed by 30+ years of it not happening again ...
