ChangeTurn On Your Radio (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Big Break (UK), 1985. New Copy ... $10.99
A great later album from Change – not nearly as well-known as their first few hits, but still in that all-solid approach to the groove that was the Change trademark during the early 80s!

Mercury/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
