One of the best comps ever made! I used to find this regularly in dollar bins and never passed it up. Gave it to friends with not the first disappointment. This is our Spring clean-the-house-corner-to-corner soundtrack! Get you one!

I typically hate compilations. I usually snag them for one or two tracks. You can't go wrong with the majority of these tunes, however. Sound quality is decent enough if not just slightly suboptimal. Price tags are usually super cheap and some of these songs are a pain in the arse to track down on vinyl. Suffice it to say, this is a no-brainer for punk/post-punk fans.

Worth it for the two Modern Lovers tracks that aren't on early versions of the S/T LP.

This was the final installment of Warner Bros' "Loss Leaders" series, sampler albums sold by mail order only and advertised on the inner sleeves of Warner and affiliate label albums. I believe this originally sold for the princely sum of $3.

really nice to have a Vinyl compilation which mixes Live Sex Pistols (Winterland 14/1/78) with Early PiL & Gang of 4, a unique and fun listen
