10 MSQ 8701 Dangerous Friends Dangerous Friends Pic-LP 1987 The production is so crisp, soft & stripped down it makes their melodic HR/Soft-Metal an odd listening experience. Actually not that bad, just very unMetallic - without being entirely nonMetal at every turn. Def' something that needs a listen before purchase tho'

Some copies look black/yellow rather than black/white, though this might be due to ageing rather than it being a different version.
