Ok, I have managed to obtain an MP3 sound sample (the wonders of modern technology!), if you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
I will send the MP3 in return! It's about a minute long and just under 1mb.
I do remember when I bought this collection of records some time ago, that the lad I had it off, said to me, "There's a rare 808 State record in there mate somewhere, I was offered £80 for it a few years ago", which to me sounded like a bit of a wifes tale!! But this maybe the one he was on about!
