Psychedelic Furs playable record sleeve

Here's a cool oddity in my record collection.   This version of the Psychedelic Furs' single "Dumb Waiters" has a playable sleeve!

What you get is a promo for their upcoming LP Talk Talk Talk, playing many of the tracks in edited form, including a snippet of a different version of "Pretty In Pink".

The embedded video of the promo won't play, but here's a link to it....

The B-Side is also a great instrumental "Dash" that was never to be released again, even on the cd reissues.



The copy I have is pretty much in mint condition and I think was only played a few times since 1981.
Got this one for a steal on eBay.  I think I paid $2 for it.
