RAF - RAF (1984)

In which we imagine a world where the compact disc was introduced in 1980, and now-obscure artists and albums could be preserved for posterity...

RAF - RAF (1984)
  1. Change Your Mind
  2. Why in The World
  3. She's a Criminal
  4. Imagination Lover
  5. Frontiers
  6. Black And Blue
  7. I Don't Want to Lose You
  8. Self Control
  9. Madeleine O.
  10. Self Control (Extended Mix) - Bonus download
RAF was known as RAFF in Germany, to avoid confusion with a well-known terrorist group. Apparently, no one was concerned that he might be mistaken elsewhere for a branch of the British armed services (or possibly even for a young Rowan Atkinson).

"Self Control" was later covered by Laura Branigan, with great success.
