Boomtown Rats - She's So Modern (1978)

From The Lost Record Covers Club
The Rats had a deal with Ensign Records run by Nigel Grainge.  He had a deal with Phonogram who licensed his products worldwide.  The Rats were certainly his biggest artist but the label had Light Of The World and Beggar And Co; Flash and The Pan and a few others.  The Rats had had a good run of singles and in the early 80's decided to reissue all the hits in their original picture bags (which would have been limited on original release).  They utilsed the same numbers and label art etc so it was a really economic way of repromoting the band's catalogue.  I think a few of them charted again in the lower reaches of the Top 40.  This is one of my favourites.  The art is very stylised like fashion sketches.
