SINEAD O'CONNOR THE LION AND THE COBRA Limited 180gram Audiophile Vinyl LP

Overview:
The Lion And The Cobra (1987) is the highly successful debut album by Irish singer Sinéad O'Connor. Deemed 'one of the most electrifying debuts in rock history', the album charted well and sold 2,500,000 copies worldwide. The album featured prominent session musicians John Reynolds on drums, former Adam and the Ants and Siouxsie and the Banshees guitarist Marco Pirroni, former Japan guitarist Rob Dean and Mike Clowes from Friction Groove on keyboards.

The first single "Troy" peaked at #8 in The Netherlands and #12 in Belgium. The second single was "Mandinka", the video for which was shown heavily after debuting on MTV's 120 Minutes. The single was a mainstream Pop hit in the UK, peaking at #17 in the singles chart, as well as #6 in her native Ireland. "I Want Your (Hands on Me)" debuted in May 1988 on the same show, featuring a rap interlude by MC Lyte. The song was featured in the 1988 horror film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master.

The U.S. cover differed from the European release, as it was felt a more subdued pose of O'Connor would present a "softer" image.
