I was watching the Stiff Records film last night "documenting" the '77 tour of UK. Cool footage of Elvis C. But the album Live Stiffs Live is the ticket! Various - Live Stiffs Live.

Location: charleston, sc. I have at least two of their comps and think they do a good job. That Crowley one above is one I have. Dave Decadent and ramonesfan like this. Location: CT. Another vote for the Rhino DIY series.
I have them all and every one of them is great. Location: Spokane, WA. I like them all and recommend them highly.
Rhino issued great stuff back then. Hoover Factory , May 29, Another excellent Cherry Red box. Location: Austin, TX. Rhino also did the "Faster and Louder: Hardcore Punk Vol 1 and 2" -- some excellent singles and a great overview of a lot of that late 70's early 80s punk. You must log in or sign up to reply here.

No, create an account now. More extreme goodies were on this final chapter in the Hardest Hits saga. As far as I know, the China Crisis and Visage cuts still only appear on this disc! Thomas Leer and Sigue Sigue Sputnik were icing on the cake. I remember hearing about The Flying Pickets and wondering at the time if their hit was a cover of the Yaz[oo] hit if the same name. Minus 20 points to whomever mastered this, but plus 50 for the song selection.
Only the repugnant Elton Motello track mars this selection of tunes sufficiently. Unfortunately, it appears here in an extended version that hurts twice as long. SPG had other, similar issues, but this marked the end of the Hardest Hits series. The person[s] who curated these, for the most part, picked real winners that were lost in the digital domain.
Even some of the lesser tracks are by obscure enough artists who will never risk boring the listener through over exposure on other comps. Hey PPM… Never even heard of this comp series, but it certainly has an interesting bunch of bands included. You call Nick Heyward wimpy twice! I love that stonking beat and vaguely sinister lyrics.
Like Like. Sometimes I love wimpy! Nick just drifts into the ether like helium gas for me; the worst sort of wimpy. You should get some of these Hardest HIts volumes — if you can find and afford them. That Trent Reznor comment was just meant to be a humorous comparison…for the record, I am not a Nine Inch Nails fan but congrats to him on winning an Oscar last night.
Like Liked by 1 person. The Big Supreme track on Volume 2 is a classic sophisti-pop. Excellent series and great overview. Our Canadian friends really outdid themselves. Agree, they licensed some real gems. That early to mid 90s period was brilliant for compilations.
