Like some of you said up there, I also bought the album, the singles (for the B-sides!), and eventually, the cassette when they were available.
What I would have given for MTV and/or a VCR back then! My high school years were spent in a tiny little town and the cable system didn't get MTV until 1986. In order to see videos in 1983 I had to stay up all night and watch Night Tracks on TBS (11pm to 5am). I only saw "Don't Cry" and "TSHLYE" a handful of times. It was more than 10 years before I saw either video again.
I love that now I can just pop in the DVD and watch them over and over if I want!
