Eat To The Beat - 1979
Eat To The Beat was the follow-up album to Parallel Lines and has become a favourite of mine and many other fans around the world. The 2001 CD release includes not only bonus tracks but an expanded booklet with rare photos and new liner notes by producer Mike Chapman giving an insight to what was going on at the time of making the album. The original Japanese 12" version of this album contains the 2 extra tracks, Heart Of Glass and Sunday Girl. Together with this there is a separate 4 page japanese lyric sheet.
