The one that got away. The American cover for the first album, not released in the US. But this cover still appears in the 'Album Cover Album' (Hipgnosis & Roger Dean, Dragon's World, 1977), on a page facing Janis Joplin, Ry Cooder, and Sandy Denny.

These were the days before CD. From 1975 to 1981 The Movies made five albums, in London, Cornwall, and New York.

A succession of record labels tried to squeeze a single from these albums. Rumour has it that Love is a Sacrifice (from the India album) made the top 10 in Portugal.

You can still find these records in catalogues and second-hand disc stores. Double A was recently seen going for 50p (in Brighton).
