I was a teenager when it came out and quite enjoyed it - probably best to stick with the memory rather than revisit it then :-\

a group of us used to listen to it at lunchtime , back in the late 70's, at work on cassette. ( a sort of recording medium with moving parts). I still have a full set somewhere. Will be worth absolutely nothing so why am I keeping them?
