'Classic' debut album from Reading's Saloon. Released in 2002. Voted one o the albums of the year by the Sunday Times. Includes the John Peel Festive 50 no.1 smash 'Girls Are The New Boys'. I have four mint unplayed copies from our archive. Possible slight scuffing on the sleeve due to age, but nothing major. Also the cheap inner sleeves seem to be deteriorating with age. Second hand copies of this change hands on eBay for about £20. 


Sleeve design by Andrew Prinz from Mahogany who produced the album. Alternative design from the LP version.
