Also, in Let It Come Down the song, " 12 Steps " ambulance sirens start at about the 1:25pm mark. Especially, for this song, the sirens seems integral.

Re: RSD 2017

I agree about some of the pricing. I paid $25 for Link Wray - Beans & Fatback LP.

the way i see it is i will never find an original copy of this album, and definitely not for that price. so it's worth it in this case. but yeah, $16 for a new 7" is a bit steep.
