    J. Geils Band - Centrefold

    The woman behind the counter at W.H. Smiths said "does your mum know you're buying this?"

    I was nine: didn't even know what a centrefold was!

    If I remember correctly (no promises) it was one of these, I can't remember the order of purchase.
    1. Crosby, Stills and Nash (1st album)
    2. Santana (the one with the lions head)
    3. Grand Funk Railroad (red album)
