Greetings from Little Rock, Arkansas (a cultural metropolis!?)

OBSCURE TRIVIA DEPT. - A friend and I have an ongoing argument over
"The Big Express".  I think they used a live drummer for at least some
of the album while my friend insists that a drum machine was used for
most, if not all, of the album.  Anybody out there have any info about
