The Police Wrapped Around Your Finger EP

I wanted to post this to show the contrast between what was marketed as a major label release and the previous post, which featured a single from Love and Rockets.

The Police were not quite at the end of their career when this came out, but no one really knew it was the end. Wrapped Around Your Finger peaked at number 8 and kept the Synchronicity album flying off the racks well into 1984.

I like the cover, but it shows what was important in the 1980s--the physical attributes of the band or the artist.

One thing I didn't know--the Police released their singles in one order for the US and in a different order for their British audience.
