Chris de Burgh – The Getaway

Recently I went to a local car-boot sale and went on the hunt for some vinyl while I was there one of the albums I picked up was this Chris de Burgh album, The Getaway.

As you can see from the images, the cover is not in the best condition but the vinyl inside is perfect.

I knew some of the songs on the album through my mam, as she had grown up listening to Chris de Burgh with her older brothers, so it was great to listen to the album on vinyl like she did!
