The Tourists - self-titled debut (June 1979)

Here we have a 24 year old Annie Lennox and a 26 year old Dave Stewart with The Tourists. Their self-titled debut album was released in June 1979. All of the songs were written by vocalist/guitarist Peet Coombs, except for one: "The Loneliest Man in The World" was co-written by Dave and Annie. It's by far the best song on the album, and was the only song from their debut to hit the U.K. Top 40 (peaking at #32). The first Top 40 hit for Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox... but of course, many more would follow in time.
