I defy you to find any person over 35 who doesn't own a copy of that album.

Are you sure you never owned a copy? What about 8-track, cassette and/or CD?

Never owned a copy of any sort. My sister had the album and took it when she moved to LSU. Never bothered to get my own copy

So there was a copy in your house until then?

That counts.

The original post said I defy you to find someone over 35 that does NOT OWN a copy, I haven't had a copy in my house since I was 13 and I never owned one

Lol, and honestly who needs the album when I can turn on any classic rock station and hear it?

I'm busy buying albums to rebuild my collection, mostly 80s new wave and punk. I do have some newer stuff, Alabama Shakes, JD McPherson, Brothers Comatose.
Just picked up some Pretenders, Waterboys, Split Enz, Rush. But no Frampton

I had a buddy whose collection was exclusive to Styx and Billy Joel - but he had everything in both catalogs ~1984.
