#D10 runs at the correct speed unlike the 7" bootleg of the "riot show"
the whole collection is a fascinating time capsule of the amazing insanely creative Post-Punk year that was 1981. the previous reviewer was spot on.

my personal highlights are: legion of honour, PiL & Dead Can Dance


September 6, 2010
There are several interesting things about this rather obscure release, not the least of which being the presence of more extinct post-punk groups than one could shake a rather large stick at. Most impressive to my inner collector, however, are those by Dead Can Dance and Crime & The City Solution; the former is the first track that they ever released (at least two years prior to their debut), while the latter is the *only* official record of that band's "first" incarnation (1977-1979; actually the second line-up).

If you find this for a reasonable price, get it.
