I stumbled upon "Bad Publicity" back in the day, when everyone would just show up at record stores looking for something new and great. At first, I wasn't too impressed, and neither were my friends. But, after repeated spins, it really grew on me. I find some of the melodies to be just amazingly haunting. Particularly "Cry of the Wild," "Stale Lipstick," and "One Step Ahead." If I play the album, one of those three tracks will be lodged in my head for days (daze?!) afterward.
I have this album in LP format, but that doesn't do me much good, as I just never listen to LPs anymore. About 98 percent of my music library has been loaded onto my computer, and that's how I listen to music most of the time. My wife REALLY doesn't share my taste in music, so I either plug in the headphones, use my iPod, or listen to CDs in the car or while at work. LPs just don't fit into my life or my schedule in any way. To be honest, I am COMPLETELY astonished that so many visitors to the board are apparently still buying vinyl. I mean, to each their own, but I just don't get it. MP3 format is so convenient. (I guess I'm lazy!) If I want to hear something, I just type in the title on my computer or dial it up on the iPod. My record collection is simply collecting dust and taking up space in the basement.

I will definitely email you regarding the CD-Rs. I have been waiting since the invention of CDs to replace my Pet Hate vinyl with CD version. And I've never even heard "The Bride Wore Red." Perhaps I'll have something in my collection that you've been looking for.
Thanks so very much!!!
