    "Whip It" was cool, but I became a "fan" in 1982 with their "Oh, No! It's Devo" album. 1983's "Theme From Doctor Detroit" was just about the greatest thing I'd ever heard! I'm sure many die hard fans would take issue with that, but I was loving the electronic music movement of the time with bands like The Human League, Men Without Hats and Thomas Dolby. To date, this 2cd set is the only official place to find "Theme From Doctor Detroit" on CD, and it's the 12" version to boot! Hopefully some day the 7" version will find its way to CD or digital download.

      Everything in this boxset has been remastered. The remastering at times can seem a bit bassy and lacking the higher end of details. Headphones is the best way to listen.
      I have this box and it's 100% worth buying.

      Of course the best Devo remastered set is "This Is the Devo Box" Japan 2008 (WPCR-12955/61).

        Great compilation, and highly recommended for both beginners and collectors of Devo. For beginners, it's MUCH better than any of those cheapo comps and/or "Greatest Hits"-type things. For one, it offers a broad selection of Devo material, from the self-released Booji Boy singles, to 1990's-era recordings, and everything in between. For collectors, it has some previously hard-to-find material (like the General Boy and Nutra-Speaks spoken pieces, the soundtrack odds n' ends), and some new recordings (an excellent studio version of "The Word's Get Stuck In My Throat").
