5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Collection Of The Pistols' Singles! 15 Jan 2001
Format:Audio CD
one word describes this sex pistols compilation album and that is "Awsome". it really is great, full of classic tracks full of the pistols' trademark punk ethics and sarcasm. my personal faves are "god save the queen" and "i wanna be me". all i can say is if you like rock music, and want something loud, buy this, you will never regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT SELECTION OF TRACKS 6 Jan 2014
By Christopher W. Brierley TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
EXCELLENT SELECTION OF TRACKS ON "Flogging a Dead Horse" but I noticed there are several different years of issue and vast differences in price.
My own issue is on Virgin 1986 and is a decent transfer to CD with fair bass and punch, which is a good thing IMHO. I got it used in vgc for very little money.
I RECOMMEND YOU TO BUY "Never Mind the Bollocks" AND "Flogging a Dead Horse" USED, SO YOU GET A DECENT EARLY TRANSFER TO CD, then you will have all of their best tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE REAL MOVERS AND SHAKERS 8 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD
In the later half of the 20th century there were many outstanding bands and individuals making great music that sold a bucket load. The Beatles, The Stones, The Beach Boys, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, and lots of others who could all fill huge arenas and sell records in the multi-millions. However there were only two bands, who whilst their record sales did not measure up to others, actually shocked the music world into a whole new approach and understanding of 'rock' music, and moved the genre massively on, shaping the sounds that we hear today to one degree or another. These two bands became the most recognised and influential bands in rock history. They were The Ramones and The Sex Pistols, both unquestionably the most radical rock bands of all time who marked the transition of rock'n'roll from a sub-genre of blues and country music into a distinct 'stand-alone' musical form.

The Sex Pistols, during a relatively short but controversial and at time out of control career, brought a sound and cultural assault to audiences never experienced before. "Flogging A Dead Horse", a compilation album of singles by the Sex Pistols, was released after their break-up, and said by some to be a cynical attempt by manager, Malcolm McClaren to cash in, hence the title of the album and the hastily drawn and cheaply produced cover design. The back cover featured a plastic dog turd on top of the gold disc for "Never Mind The Buzzcocks - Here'e The Sex Pistols" LP. Everything was was done on the cheap to maximise returns knowing that the Band was highly unlikely to record again.

Despite all of this the album contains much of the bands best work including "Anarchy In The UK", "God Save The Queen", "Did You No Wrong", "The Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle", "No One Is Innocent", and the marvellously quirky rendition by Sid Vicious of Paul Anka's song made famous by Frank Sinatra, "My Way".

Listen to musical history in the making.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you've got "Never Mind The Bollocks"... 15 Feb 2002
By beatrice - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
OK, if you've got that great album "NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS", there's the only thing left to be done - buy this album. Just because their next album "The Great R'n'R Swindle" turned out to be disappointing, but it had a few real good tracks (contributed by Sid Vicious), which all are included here.
This is a collection of all the Pistols' singles from 1976 to 1979, so besides the tracks from "The Swindle" (and "Never Mind..."), there is a great deal of famous tracks omitted from "Never Mind...": "No Fun", "I Wanna Be Me", "Did You No Wrong", "Steppin' Stone" and "Anarchy In The UK" - in its raw original version. You wouuld be enough satisfied.
[This collection originally was released in 1979 in the U.K.]

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for any true fan! 27 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Though this doesn't have the attitude and fury of "Never Mind The Bollocks", it is essential for any hardcore fan of the Sex Pistols. Mostly a collection of covers, "Flogging A Dead Horse" is definitely memorable and fun to listen to. What's most reassuring is that it's not all "Bollocks" rehash, like so many other Pistols albums. The most memorable performances are Sid Vicious' heartfelt and furious butchering of Frank Sinatra's "My Way", and the Monkees' "Stepping Stone (I'm Not Your)", and among the worst are "Something Else" and "No Fun". I only gave this four stars because it is mostly non-Pistols material, yet it still rocks out like the Pistols should. This album shows the inspirations of the Sex Pistols' rage filled punk anthems, and gives insight into their musical backgrounds. Though not their best, it is recomended for the true fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars The one you've been looking for! 2 Mar 2000
By Brian T. Berek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Hey. Hey! HEY! Listen up now people - if you've been looking for a Pistols album and you already have Bollocks than this is the one for you. This one shines amidst the flurry of sound-alike compilations and so-called bootlegs. The first half has their essential tunes from Bollocks mingled with the more rare songs like the awesome I Wanna Be Me and the classic Did U No Wrong. The second half is what sets this apart from the other discs of the genre. Sid's incomprable My Way is included along with groove of Somethin' Else that was featured in Sid & Nancy but didn't make it onto the soundtrack. Tack on Swindle, No One Is Innocent, and a few other gems and you've got the best offering released under the Pistols name since they disintegrated after the 'Frisco show in '78. If you only own one Pistols album then you better go back, scroll up, and click on Never Mind the Bollocks. But if you're in the market for two then get to Floggin'!

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice collection of Sex Pistols singles. 15 Jun 2005
By Joseph P. Ulibas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Flogging a Dead Horse is a collection of singles that the Sex Pistols released from 1976 to 1979. Most of the songs feature Lydon, Jones, Matlock and Cook, but a few of them have studio Pistol and future Professional Andy Allen on bass. Material from Never Mind the Bollocks and The Great Rock n' Roll Swindle are represented on this cash-in disc (the end of the album has a cash register ring). A must have for Sex Pistols fans (I did u no wrong and No Fun)

Sid Vicious sings as well as Steve Jones and temporary Pistol Eddie "Tenpole" Tudor are on some of these tracks.

A good collection of singles that augment the Sex Pistols first album very nicely.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sex Pistols - 'Flogging A Dead Horse' (EMI) 3 1/2 stars 29 Dec 2005
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
'Flogging A Dead Horse' is a collection of both the A and B sides of each of their seven (7) British singles released between 1976-79. All your favorites are here, like "Anarchy In The UK", their infamous "God Save The Queen", "Pretty Vacant", their Stooges cover "No Fun" and their remake of the Monkees hit "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone". This fourteen track title MAY not be the best Pistol's compilation, but it'll simply do. Check it out.
