Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: Three CDs of brilliant music, wrapping up virtuially everything the band released on a single between 1977 and 1982. However, given that radio edits of 'Walk On By' and 'La Folie' are included, it is odd that radio versions of 'Peaches' and 'No More Heroes' are not. For the sake of comprehensiveness they could have also included the Celia & The Mutations single 'Mony Mony', as that falls well within the scope of this collection (released on UA in 1977) and features the whole band as backing group (but for obvious reasons it ain't here). The packaging also leaves a lot to be desired, with the booklet containing annoyingly altered images of the sleeves and no liner notes. Great music, though, and nicely remastered with plenty of oomph, so worth getting.
