Product Description

This compilation seems uncharacteristic of Hut: the British indie label has never gone in for self-promotion or self-aggrandising, which may be part of the reason that it has never acquired the mythic status of rival imprints like 4AD, Mute or Creation. True to form, there is no celebratory essay included here by way of sleevenotes: Hut seems determined that its artists will speak for it. They do this with varying degrees of effectiveness. Because Hut (unlike 4AD, Mute or Creation) have never allied themselves to any particular aesthetic, they've been free to sign acts as diverse as modest neo-folk balladeers Gomez and Swedish pop scamsters Placebo. The quality varies just as wildly: while there is never going to be an excuse for Smashing Pumpkins' bellicose metal nonsense, or Embrace's Oasis retreads, there is never going to be anything disagreeable about hearing McAlmont & Butler's magnificent "Yes" or The Auteurs' ferocious "Lenny Valentino" again. --Andrew Mueller

4.0 out of 5 stars Value-and-a-half 14 July 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you're reading this, you probably already have some of the essential music on this compilation - 'Yes', 'Nancy Boy', 'All You Good Good People', 'History'. If you were lucky enough to snap up a copy of The Music's 'Take the Long Road and Walk It' when first released, then good luck to you. I didn't and couln't find it anywhere except on this compilation. A truly fantastic debut single, worth the price on it's own. Only it's not on it's own. It's got Whale's 'Hobo-humping Slobo Babe' for company. And what splendid noisy-quiet company it is, a welcome blast from the past.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for a few quid 17 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Most of these tracks i already owned, but it can't hurt to hear them again as a compilation. The inclusion of David Gray after the label dropped him in the early days seems needless, especially as some great acts to have graced the label are not included, such as u-ziq and luke haines as a solo artist. The choice of song to represent each artist also seems a little strange, since most choices are obvious (placebo-nancy boy, embrace-good people), whereas the pumpkins, verve and richard ascroft are represented by lesser known tracks (i am one, history, brave new world). However, the real highpoints of the album are the new tracks, especially by The Music and Crackout. Add this to the inclusion of McAlmont & Butler's Yes, one of the most brilliant tracks that I ever completely forgot about, and you have a pretty fine little compilation for mid-price.
