Quite elusive as far as these things go - rarely found online. This has to be one of the greatest K-Tel compilations of the the new wave era if not the best - there's only two dubious numbers (Liquid Gold & Sarah Brightman) and for a 1979 K-Tel album some of the sequencing is amazing. I grew up with this record (got it when I was 5) but even now the gapless segue between "Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick"s final cough and the space-age swish of the "Can You Feel The Force" intro sends shivers up my spine by how well it works (try it on your iTunes if you want to see what I mean). The run of new wave gems on side 2 was not bettered on any compilation of this era. Those are the proper single mixes for "Contact" and "Sound Of The Suburbs" here too, the former is quite hard to find, the latter has never been issued on cd.
