Lap of luxury - Jethro Tull

Buying my 400th single was quite a big deal. I was thinking hard what would be an appropriate buy. In the end, I settled on this double single. Not because I was a fan of Jethro Tull, but because it was the only double single available at the time for a reasonable price. And I thought it would be appropriate to have a double single as a festive treat.

The band had just released 'Under wraps' in 1984, a very electronic album with no live drummer but a drum machine. Although the band was reportedly proud of the sound, the album was not well received. However, the video for 'Lap of luxury' did manage to earn moderate rotation on the newly influential MTV music video channel. 'Lap of luxury' reached number 70 in the UK singles chart.

My collection: 7" single no. 400
Found: Disco Market, Den Haag, 1984
Cost: 7,5 guilders
Tracks: 'Lap of luxury' / 'Astronomy' // 'Automotive engineering' / 'Tundra'
