Today we had visit from a lovely chap called Ed Greer.
He came in to chat about a vinyl based system to play his Treasured new wave pop collection... pride of the collection is his only copy of the 1984 single Russian Doll by 2 Point 2.
He was the singer/songwriter of the single and can be seen in the publicity shot, behind his friend and fellow band member. It was put out on the Rock City label which was home at the time to Gary Newman.
There were only 250 copies made and even though the single was played on capitol radio, the Label spent most of it's time promoting the ever popular Newman so unfortunately 2 Point 2 joined the many others who gave it their best shot, but sadly never made it to stardom.
He hadn't heard the song in ages, and was quite emotional when we played it to him on one of our shop systems.
It's a very catchy number, especially the A-Side Russian Doll.
Thanks again Ed for sharing the memories with us, and unlike most one-off singles, it is actually very good!
