Punk 1977-2007

A three disc set for ya, found in outter space, I'd say about 60% of this stuff is common,easy to find
stuff, but there are a gem or two here.....the way it's programmed is addmitedly odd, but there is enough reasonalby obscure material hre to make this worth our time......

Disc 1 is entitled "Hardcore and the British Second Wave" (Don't ask ME?), it contains some VERY obvious selections such a the Dead Kennedy's "Too Drunk to Fuck" and "Alternative Ulster" By Stiff Little Fingers", but other than those, there is a smattering of lesser-comped stuff by Die Toten Hosen, Blitz, Anti-Pasti, The Undead, The Partisians and more.......worthwhile for fans of 1970's-80's punk rock (and if you aren't one, why are you here?)

Disc 2 is "Roots and Rarities", I don't honestly see anything THAT rare here, but "roots" wise....well, Iggy &the Stooges "I Got a Right" is a good one, and there are quite obvious tracks from the MC5, The Runaways, TheVelvet Underground, The New York Dolls, etc all of which, frankly, can be heard in FAR better context than here.....we get a fairly rare one from Cherie Currie, Sid Viscious version of "Search and Destroy", an Ex-Pistols track, and even "Bored" by Destroy All Monsters.....nothing spectacular here, but at least a COUPLE of tracks that I didn't have before, so program as you will

A finally, Disc 3....."The '77 Revolution" (WHO programmed this?).....it contains a ton MORE obvious tracks, from the golden era, among the most often comped an easiest to find tracks by the Pistols, Ramones, Eddie & the  Hot Rods, The Vibrators, Buzzcocks, 999.......really, nothing much you probably don't already in better company, tracks from Chelsea and Alternatve TV my be among the "rarest" things here.


Not a "great" set, as I imagine most ofou have MOST of this material in better company,BUT I put
stuff like this in case there are 3-4 tracks you DON'T have (The Cherie Currie track is a true rarity)....for newbies, I suppose this is a good collection, but, really,most of us could program it down to a few tracks, I'm sure......anyway, I aim to please, and tomorrow, some REAL punk rarities that I just stumbeled upon lately..... MUCH more the kind of thing we try to do around here!
