A really great look at the more tuneful side of the UK scene during the prime years of punk rock – a set that doesn't ignore punk for more mainstream material – but instead shows the way the new sound was influencing bands in a variety of styles, who were then also turning things back with a nice new edge of their own! Most of these tracks aren't by artists you'd think of as punk legends – although there are a few in the mix – but there's definitely a short, sharp shock to most of the tunes, while still also exploding with a strong sense of melody too! The whole thing is a really great way to go back to this generation – and has a much more sophisticated approach than you'd guess from the "power pop" or "new wave" in the title – a logic that's also spelled out in the very big booklet of notes that comes with the box. 3CD set features 76 tracks in all – with work by The Times, Piranhas, Squeeze, Buzzcocks, Distractions, Rich Kids, Any Trouble, Yachts, Bleeding Hearts, Salford Jets, Bram Tchaikovsky, Monochrome Set, The Boys, Barracudas, Realists, Radio Stars, The Circles, Ruts, Tonight, Nips, Amber Squad, Thought Police, Knox, Eater, Shooter, Those Naughty Lumps, Autographs, and many more!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
