  1. I only knew about the release on the French "America" label with a rather "bleh" cover, but that Prestige at least toyed with the idea of a US release, that surprises me. Thank you, porter_esq!

  2. To my shame the only AEC I have from this era is"Sophie" thanks for the opportunity to partially rectify this situation at least..
