This collection, released through Festival Records, comes largely via the excellent curation by Glenn Terry and David Laing from VICIOUS SLOTH. The team have collated a fascinating set of period snaps and Glenn has penned an excellent essay on the era. Buy the album, read the notes.
The selection of tracks, 23 in all, spans the years from 1973-1979. This is not to suggest an airtight timeframe, but more an overview of what was happening.
