You’ve Got The Power


This is my second Third World LP. I have a 12″ single as well from the group that has been cataloged and I’m fairly certain there’s even more in the bag we brought home for Christmas. I forget now! It’s either in there or in the “to be brought home” pile at the record store. I can’t help it, I want the group’s discography!

This album sleeve is a little worn, having come from a radio station and all but the album itself plays well. I love getting these radio station albums because they all have little notes from the DJs on them.

Since I’ve touched on the overall group information before, lets get into their line up and how it has changed over the years.
