An early anthology containing several tracks from the band's first four singles--except for "Untitled", an early version of "The Modern Dance" that was previously unreleased. (As for the songs not on this compilation, "The Modern Dance" and "Street Waves" were included on the "Modern Dance" album, while "Final Solution" and "My Dark Ages" wouldn't be reissued until 1980.) "Heart of Darkness" is edited for time.
A dedication on the credits reads "For Anton Fier
", who was Ubu's substitute drummer during their sping 1978 European tour because Scott Krauss
had temporarily left the band.
