Orange Juice : Out On The Floor Tonight

Orange Juice
'Out on the Floor Tonight' (poster)

Yet another wonderful, unseen(?) item from the Postcard Records' era. This time we have a very rare, I imagine, early days poster for the seven-inch 'Blue Boy / Lovesick' single
(Postcard 80-2) which was released in 1980.
