Over 9000 days since the release of my favourite Erasure album, with my favourite artwork, with my favourite song (Take Me Back).

9000 days?? Sheesh!

Agreed I Say is simply their best, with artwork and an attitude that is so warm and inviting - something I can't really say about any later album until Nightbird. It felt magical 9000 days ago and still feels that way now. Though I like the artwork for Erasure a bit more now than I originally did, the cold (portrait) cover didn't win many fans and the sterile computer generated covers of Cowboy and Loveboat have no personality at all.

A memory I'll never forget: I was young and new to NYC but found out that a small import record shop would get in the "Always" single on the day of the release. I wasn't that familiar with the West Village yet, and this was before the internet, so with maps and several friends' advice, I figured out where the store was (it was called "Zapp Records!") and plotted my route and practically ran there after work!!

Such great memories!! (and yes I was then enthralled with the album and to this day still get chills from 'Take Me Back'!!) 8-)

Glad to see another member of the Take Me Back Appreciation Fan Club! I would kill for an extended/12" mix of that song... :P
