      This is one the best punk albums ever released. This ment a lot to me when I was 11-12 y old in ’77. Classic performances.

        Still can't believe this landmark LP goes for little money ,Don't get me wrong that's the way it should be but with everything else less important than this ie chart punk going for more doesn't make sense to me,oh well I spose one day it'll go the same way as the rest ,in my opinion it's a great document to this movement 👍

          That's the back of Stewart Copeland (and his Tama set) on the front cover!

            This is still available direct from Rhino - and for considerably less than it seems to be selling for here - so it's probably worth buying it there if you want it.

              My inner sleeve has a pink centre square - not white

                Four decades later, critics and fans are still arguing about what "punk" meant. Was it a musical style? A code of dress? Did the bands themselves embrace the term, or was it thrust upon them? Was it always political? Was it *ever* political? Even if we confine ourselves to the musical aspect of the debate, it's obvious that punk never had a single definition. Play this record back to back with "Live from CBGB's" and you'll understand just how astonishingly different the New York and UK scenes were; at times, the only immediate resemblance between the two versions of punk is that they were both played in small nightclubs. The Roxy, which operated for just four months in 1977, was the epicenter of London's punk scene...but, as "England's Dreaming" author Jon Savage acknowledges, "it was also where the dream of access turned sour, as many of the groups that came up displayed a lack of imagination and a reliance upon formula...Punk's accessibility seemed to suggest that anyone could do it: the Roxy proved that not everybody could." The Unwanted typify this dreary, derivative approach on 'Freedom'. Wire deliver solid early versions of two "Pink Flag" standards ('Lowdown' and '12XU') but were already beginning to distance themselves from the sneering punk stereotype, and wisely so. The Roxy being synonymous with London, it's interesting to note that the record opens and closes with performances by Mancunian bands: Slaughter and the Dogs and Buzzcocks. They also happen to be the tightest of the groups represented here; Buzzcocks, in particular, were going places and their talent is unmistakable even on this ragged live recording.

                Not the most entertaining album of its era, but an essential listen for students of punk history.

                  i have had a uk copy of this lp for well over 3 decades but i had NEVER seen this japan copy until recently, this was released in japan in 1977 in very limited quantity, the sleeve has a rather thick cardboard 70s style sleeve, a thick 70s style obi strip and a fold out insert with english lyrics and an essay in japanese on all bands featured here, obviously this record did not sell very well at the time in japan and went oop as quick as it came out, if you are a big 1977 uk punk freak and you collect a lot of stuff in this vein GET THIS!!!! if you ever see it as i only saw this for the first time recently, that is why i grabbed it...

                    Did this one really come with a gatefold sleeve? I would like to see scans to prove that. Thank you.
