    They were certainly in print longer than David Bowie. The first Eurythmics RCA disc was probably Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), which exists with an RCD prefix. It's probably late 1983 or early 1984, and one of the earliest RCA titles on CD. All of their regular albums from Sweet Dreams to We Too Are One were platinum certified here in the UK, so the only explanation for not seeing their LPs with any regularity in charity shops is the vinyl revival. I haven't checked my local record store for Eurythmics CDs because they charge a ridiculous amount per CD, irrespective of how rare or common it is (good if there is something really rare on the shelves).

    Oh they were davinitely :)laugh:) longer in print than the Bowie RCA cds. Unfortunately. Because one reason why I'm seeing so many Eurythmics discs is that I relentlessly keep browsing these bins for the familiar white-blue RCA spine. Only thing I came up with in all these years was "ChangesBowie". And tons of "Let's Dance"s. On EMI but I notice them anyway:evil:

    Clannad are another RCA artist I see a lot. Clannad Legend is everywhere. One of my Eurythmics CDs (Revenge) has a red yellow spine because it is a Japan for US copy.

    It's been a couple of years since I went to Amoeba in San Francisco frequently, but I used to see used copies of the original Eurythmics cds there frequently for very little money. They were usually the US issues (red and yellow spine) but I occasionally saw the European imports (blue and white spine).

    Yeah, Clannad. Back in the day a good friend was a big fan of "Magical Ring" and the Bono graced "Macalla":evil:

    One thing I love about cd spine browsing is how much past is buried/ hidden in those bins. Haha.... I also see a lot of those white/ red Polydor spines. On Chris Rea discs:uhhuh:

    If you could provide a time tunnel back to 1986 these bins would make you rich. Haha.... you could even take pre-orders.

    I'm not sure taking a time tunnel back to 1986 would help, since CDs were very rare then, and often went OOP quickly. But spine browsing is my preferred way of browsing. It's a lot quicker than flicking through the discs. It's especially true of charity shops where nothing is ordered.

    colinu I'm not lazy, I'm energy efficient!

    I just checked my local store's online listing - they have most original discs in stock.

    I then checked bullmoose.com for those in the Northeast US - again, most in stock.

    Oh, I was thinking of selling today's bin CDs back to the people of 1986. In 1986:biglaugh:

    You're in Europe, though. Eurythmics did alright in the US, but they were much bigger sellers across Europe. In the US their best selling days were over by the time CDs really took off. So mostly only fans would have the earlier discs on CD.
