Only 1 available

Built for Speed is an album from the American rockabilly band Stray Cats and was the band's first American album. It is essentially a compilation of 12 songs taken from the band's first two initially UK-released albums: six from Stray Cats and five from Gonna Ball, plus the title track, "Built for Speed", which had not previously been released in the UK. It was the most successful record for the band, with the videos for songs such as "Rock This Town" and "Stray Cat Strut" reaching MTV regular rotation status. The title track can also be heard in the 1984 film Surf II.

Still sealed in like new condition!

Please note that the cover may have some wear that is not highlighted in the description.
Please check the pictures carefully for edges, corners, ring wear, tears or anything else that might be of concern to you.

We don't CLEAN or PLAY the Records before listing them, Grading is done on a visual level only if at all, I am not comfortable putting a grade on, as it is ALWAYS subject to personal interpretation.

If there are defects I will do my best to bring them to your attention.
