I realize this is a fairly obvious question to pose but it's one that manages, always, to wind up providing us information from people other than professional critics. I'm actually a FAN of critics, since they've led me to some very good things I may not have found on my own. But there is something about the "real world" approach.
So here goes. This is what I'm listening to AS WE SPEAK....
JUST SAY SIRE: THE SIRE RECORDS STORY. 3 CD'S AND A DVD.
Some of the "highlights":
Tainted Love - Soft Cell; Genius of Love - Tom Tom Club; I'm Stranded - the Saints; Soon - My Bloody Valentine; Blitzkrieg Bop - Ramones; Alex Chilton - the Replacements; Sonic Reducer - Dead Boys; Blank Generation - Richard Hell & the Voidoids......and a LOT of other great stuff by the likes of Depeche Mode, Echo & the Bunnymen, The Smiths/Morrissey, etc.
Frankly, a lot of the songs on this collection I had already on the artist's albums but it IS a stellar set, regardless.
