|Various Artists Classic 45's - Punk Limited RSD 2016 10 x 7 Inch Vinyl Box Set
The ten specially selected double AA side 7" singles in this box present twenty of the most varied and exciting tracks spanning those crucial few years. It's nearly forty years since many of these tracks appeared on vinyl so it is inevitably very difficult to find mint copies.
From the initial burst of energy of the Damned, X-Ray Spex, and The Lurkers, the hardcore spirit of likes of The Exploited, to the punk poetry of Patrik Fitzgerald and John Cooper Clarke. Housed in a hard slipcase, the ten 7" singles are 'dinked' as juke-box singles and the box includes a 'spider' centre for play.
