Have to disagree with llorenna. We didn't need vol 2 to be a retread of ground covered in the first set, and this doesn't disappoint. A number of real classics here - particularly at the more Indy end - and some songs which were definitley at their best on the 12" format. Pig Bag's "Papa's Got A Brand New Pig Bag" seemed to be in the Indy chart for years in the mid 80's, and remains brilliant. I'm presuming that "Big Decision" by That Petrol Emotion is one of the "never-heard-of-it" songs referred to in the earlier review? Too bad, it's a great song, by the bit of the Undertones who didn't go all wet on us. Nice to see some FGTH on this volume (though I would have preferred Relax to Two Tribes), as well as the first 12" single that I ever bought - Soft Cell's Bedsitter - every bit as good a 12" as Tainted Love, and the classic Pet Shop Boys debut. Malcolm Mclaren's Madame Butterfly - one of the singles from Fans - his excellent album fusing electro, hip hop and opera, is another highlight. The big question still remains though - where is Blue Monday?
