It was a detective story discovering his own copy of the Heroes album was lost, painstakingly reconstructing the sleeve liner from bad jpeg's on eBay and dodgy internet lyric transcriptions. Then Reg the local vinyl guy found a copy that had been hanging on someone's wall. Unplayed - but the pins through each corner made it worthless. A lucky break.
