Found in a discount bin

Imagine, if you will, me and my boys and niece wandering the streets of Metz (France, I live in France for anyone who isn't up on the times). We wander into a vintage vinyl store recommended to us by the owner of a vintage clothing store that single handedly backed up my argument to my niece that French people can be just as nice as all those awesome people in Valencia, Spain. Anyway, we wander in, A finds magical things, the boys find a box of toys and I find CDS FOR A EURO EACH. I buy five. Including this little morsel:
