Eurythmics in Their Own Words.

By Charlesworth, Chris, editor.

London: Omnibus Press, 1984. First Edition Oversized Paperback in glossy pictorial wraps Near Fine in Wraps 4th (9 x 12), stapled softcover, approximatel;y 36 unnumbered pages with color photos on every page. Published by Omnibus Press, distributed by Cherry Lane Books(THIS IS NOT the 128-page biography that came out later that same year.) B4 This is a collector's item -- a 36-page book filled with pictures, and a fold-out large poster (of the photo on the front cover) still intact, stapled into the book. The layout consists of large photos with paragraph clips of quotes on the page, identified as either Annie or Dave, talking about everything from their roots as "The Tourists," to the sort of candid, honest-but-racist remarks promotional people are horrified to hear from British Isles stars, some things that even they might wish they hadn't said. I have seen this book is listed in many online outlets, but none of them actually have an actual copy of it.
