This was the missing link in the history of postpunk on CD. It's a very affordable 2xCD compiling most of Essential Logic's recorded moments, as well as nearly all of Lora's solo stuff, plus many recent tunes.
Lora was 16 when she became the saxophonist for X-Ray Spex and played on their first 7", "Oh Bondage, Up Yours!" for Virgin Records. Soon after, she was booted from the band due to a clash of personalities, but by this time she'd been writing her own material, such as "Petrol Pump Blues" (which showed up in altered form on her solo LP) and drawing notice for her compelling stage presence. She began working on her own material and appeared on songs by Kollaa Kestaa, the Stranglers, Dennis Bovell, the Raincoats and Swell Maps, and ultimately released the "Aerosol Burns" single, both sides of which appear here. Few debut singles so definitively captured such a complete and thoroughly unique sound. Intrigued, Virgin offered a deal, which resulted in the four-song "Wake Up" EP. Unfortunately, the photo of the (Disney character) March Hare that Lora took for the cover resulted in a lawsuit threat, and the EP was deleted shortly after release. Virgin dropped the band.
Lora soon signed with Rough Trade and released an album, "Beat Rhythm News" (7 of 9 songs here), a single taken from the album, "Popcorn Boy", (included but without its flipside). Membership shuffles appear to have slowed progress for the next couple of years, though Lora did contribute vocals and sax to two Red Crayola LPs as well as five singles.

This literally has to be the worst quality CD I've heard, and I've heard a LOT of bad quality CD's. The sources appear to be bad quality records and low-fi cassette tapes. Some are even higher end compressed MP3's! The sound ranges from thuddy and dull to distorted and unpleasant. I bought the CD as soon as it was released, and promptly disposed of it. It looks like the Kill Rock Stars is turning out to be another disappointing label who is willing to cut corners when it comes to obtaining good sources and quality mastering for the sake of saving a few $$. I decided to give their recent Delta 5 CD a try and found the Rough Trade singles were also poorly remastered vinyl transfers. I will not be purchasing another KRS CD.

There has be an increasing amount of CD's released with poor quality sound from both major and indie labels, and I'm happy to see others pointing out such things on Amazon. I am only too glad to assist because these shoddy CD's need to stop!

it seems as of late there have been many re-releases of disco-punk of the late '70s to '80s, but the truly interesting and key players seem to but left out by this quick rash of retro revival. however this is one to check out. Lora Logic was there at the beginning of it all (w/ X-ray Spex of course) in the punk world, but after being shoved out she learned to survive and mutate into composing brillant quirky numbers that were both political and personal without proclaiming to be obviously either. With a strange sweet voice, sax in hand and riddim from her band the closest group that compare would've been the Raincoats in their "Moving" period or Delta 5's "Mind Your Own Business" 7". both discs contain wonderful cuts, despite odd songs here and there, all spanning from (mostly) early '80s to the late '90s. it's worth inspection just due to the fact one can understand what origin all these "new wave post-punkers" are trying to rip off.
