Thomas Dolby: The Golden Age of Wireless (1982)
Original pressings of this record did not include the famous single, She Blinded Me With Science. I have a Canadian repress from 1983 that includes this song, which was a hit from the Blinded by Science EP released in January of 1983. I guess the record label decided that they could increase sales of the LP by including that song, rather than risk people not purchasing an EP.
The Golden Age of Wireless is a fantastic record even without that song. I really love the sound on the record. There are so many great tracks, like One of Our Submarines, but it's hard to choose a favourite. The odd thing is that copies of this record are easily found at affordable prices. Go get one.
And a live track:
