Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: Excellent compilation of album tracks and singles sides. This hauled in most of the band’s B-sides and all the A-Sides currently unavailable on the digital format, among which are covers of John Lennon’s ‘Gimme Some Truth’ (excellent) and ‘Shakin’ All Over’ (a bit ropy) and sterling originals such as ‘Trying For Kicks’ and ‘No No No'. Well worth acquiring, although Castle Communications didn’t exactly pull out all the stops with the packaging.
