Why there is not RSD 2019 box set with 7 unches on Discogs yet ? I bought one so it exits ;)

Typical Fall reissue from SV. Pretty good for the most part. Packaging is minimal as per usual (including the yellow copy paper "liner notes.") My copy had scuffing from the paper innersleeve likely from shipping. Aside from that, another solid release. Not your typical exploitative Fall compilation. Pick this one up. These singles are ace!

I love The Fall but I have no idea why this counts as electronic music! That said, this box set is beautifully packaged but has one major drawback. The version of "Container Drivers" (truly a masterpiece) is not the John Peel session version that appeared on the original vinyl release of Kicker Conspiracy. Apparently, Castle Communications wouldn't pay the BBC to licence it to them. Instead, the version is the one from the Grotesque LP. Please stay awake if you have read this far ....
