SEVEN AND THE RAGGED TIGER:
Seven & The Ragged Tiger is the third Studio album from Duran Duran released in Nov 1983.
"[Seven & The Ragged Tiger].. is an adventure story about a little commando team. 'The Seven' is for us — the five band members and the two managers — and 'the Ragged Tiger' is success. Seven people running after success. It's ambition. That's what it's about." (Simon Le Bon)
