The Red Shoes - UK Vinyl Release

I bought this back in 1994, at HMV in Oxford, London. I recall this was the only copy they had in stock, and little did I know then how rare it was going to be. I never opened mine, so it's still factory sealed with the original price sticker of £10.79 on it. I'm not sure why I never opened it. Maybe it's because I had it on CD and didn't feel the need to, or maybe I knew that I would never find one in my own country and wanted to keep it in mint condition. I never knew at that time, or for quite a few years after that how rare this album would become. Vinyl albums were starting to be phased out at that time, and there weren't a lot of copies pressed of The Red Shoes. I feel fortunate I got one, as well as keeping it sealed.
