Two Minds Crack - Victory Parade LP


This is not your typical USA pressed LP of Victory Parade, a renowned first and probably only LP from these 80s powerpop trio. It's a Germany-pressed LP you don't find too often at record stores. This has far more superior quality a record collector would know and agree for sure. Upside Down, is a power ballad covered by several artist in my homeland the Philippines, is the highlight of the album. Such a pity it was never released as a single. It could have been their breakthrough, it could have changed the course of their career and could have led to their destiny to be perceived worldwide.

  1. Good post NB. I'm curious what the front sleeve looks like? I have one but it's a US pressing. I collect different pressings also especially the ones that have different picture sleeves. Thanks!

  7. NB. I can't tell kasi I haven't seen the metronome released. I don't even know if mine is a legit or bootleg released copy. Naalala mo yung rumour noon sa NW101 na may nagboot daw nito sa pinas.
