Didn't this album break a record (pardon the pun) at the time for being recorded, pressed and released (at least locally) in like 2 or 3 days? I seem to remember it being a big deal at the time.....

I'll research that. I know you're right. I just don't know how quickly it was done.
On another note, I must have seen them live 7-8 times. They were always playing at The Ritz. I also saw them open for the original Pretenders lineup at The Palladium in NYC.
