Hi, I have two picture discs I bought in the UK back in the 80s when Bruce was heavily promoted, just before the Born In The USA fever exploded. I've never played either of them and taken great care in looking after them, but unfortunately for personal reasons I may have to sell them to raise some funds, and I am having trouble evaluating them. They are:-

The Dancing in the Dark / Pink Cadillac - Cadillac shaped picture disk first release from 1986

and

the Cover Me - Bruce Shaped picture with the Born In The USA flag plinth which is unfolded and still in the packaging. The record is also first edition release and has the blacked-out 33rpm, and it has no discoloration (i have read that some of them went brown with age!)

I figured if anyone knows, you guys know.

thanks for your time

Paul
