1988

Creation – LP, Celluloid/Moving Target MT 018

The first Celluloid/Moving Target release was a rush job with an updated back cover photo but the original LP track list (though the LP labels list the correct tracks), incorrect and missing credits, and for some reason the cover colors are red, gold and…blue?
