    Interesting the first ever 12" single I saw and bought for the sum of 50p new was XTC 3d in about 1977 prior to that they were punting picture disc 7" hopefully that was one of the first ,well at least what I saw at 15 years old, I just had to have it as it was the first 12" Single id seen it was a big deal
