|Where can I get an on-line picture of the great album art that accompanied the vinyl release? It was a picture of two cartoon guys playing ping pong on a high cliff surrounded by, you guessed it, a huge abyss.

|Very interesting album. I remember I was disappointed when I first bought it in 1983. But, after a few listens - I got it. I loved it. Very raw rock, with touches of New Wave, a dash of Punk and even an old (1929-old) Gospel/Blues number by the Great-Grandfather of Gospel/Blues - Washington Phillips. 'Denomination Blues', probably the earliest recorded song exhorting the church to be what it was meant to be, was actually made famous by Ry Cooder and done here in fine style by the 77s.

|Have always loved this album....each song is a gem. 'It's So Sad' was especially noteworthy...a very mysterious gothic electronic piece with dark baritone vocals, with a clear cut Christian message...of warning. I just digitized my vinyl copy, FINALLY! Now I'm psyched, I can listen to this more easily from here on. This was ALWAYS my favorite 77's album, critics (i.e. allmusic.com) be danged!!
