I love gimmicky shaped picture disks from the 80s; they were used all the time in the U.K. to force songs on to the charts and here’s a prime example I picked up on RSD for a whopping $2 despite never hearing the song before. Roman Holilday was a short-lived act that tried to do for jump swing what the Stray Cats did for rockabilly. It’s mainly remembered (if at all) for “Stand By,” and this is the follow-up. You’d swear it was a cheap knock-off of Wham’s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go”—except this came out two years earlier! The resemblance is uncanny—which means the song is both catchy and supremely irritating at the same time. Anyway, cool-looking record, and the license plate is a nice touch.

GEORGE MICHAEL Older. Very rare and genuine two-sheet set of proof artwork produced by Sonicom in Hammersmith London for the cover sleeves of the cassette and CD album formats. Each sheet measures approximately 25" x 36" in size and shows the CMYB colour saturation and cut marks, originally these sheets were folded in two. The sheets are dated 25th March 1996 and either sheet or both would look great framed. Rarely does sheet artwork become available so these make for truly rare, original, acquisition.
