I discovered Mike:
Back in 1973, a classmate brought that new vinyl to the classroom, with the strange twisted bell on the cover. Out of curiosity, I persuaded him to let me have it for a couple of days. I listened to it at leisure: it amazed me no end, never heard something like it before. Got my open reel, and taped some excerpts here and there. After a while, I discovered to my utter astonishment that I had taped the whole album! I was hooked for life.
