I was 10 years old. Walked into our local department store , Barkers. I wonder if anyone remembers Barkers. Back when you had stand alone department stores. Birthday money in hand and bought the vinyl. I remember how new vinyl had a certain smell, maybe just the packaging.  The album sleeve has the 5 members photos with of course in the middle,  picture twice the size. Thinking holy crap look at these guys. Then needle on record,  and bong , bong, bong. Into riff. Ten year old boy blown away. Just great rock and roll no holds bared, no deep thinking. Fun, powerful stuff. Like Little Richard on steroids. 

Always loved Shake A Leg 

Great shit!
