Biography

The story of how The Stranglers came into existence in the first place, is perhaps atypical of the music industry. No less surprising then, that it’s history too, is unusual. It began in 1973 and that story is both long and complex.

A lengthy discourse covering those formative days has now been covered in some considerable detail in Jet's musical odyssey elsewhere on these ... Read more in Amazon's Stranglers Store

Format: Audio CD
Two of the classic first 4 Stranglers albums in one package and the price of one CD is a real bargain! I must say that I'm surprised that the first and third are packaged together, maybe it would have made more sense to package 'No More Heroes' with Rattus, but who cares - this is a damn good deal!
Rattus is one of the best Stranglers albums by far, and shows them at their most 'punk' stage. Great tracks like 'Hanging Around' and the epic 'Down in the Sewer' standout here, but there are plenty of other good tracks, including the overplayed 'Peaches'.
'Black and White' was a change in direction for the Stranglers, with a more varied kind of writing going on. There are tracks that are obviously different from the first two albums, like 'Outside Tokyo' and 'Do You Wanna?', but there is enough of the classic sound too in tracks like 'Tank' and the semi-reggae of 'Nice 'n' Sleazy'.
The best part of this package is that you get the bonus tracks from each of the CD's as if you had bought them separately, so you get classics like 'Go Buddy Go' and 'Walk on By' too.

Weird to get the 1st & 3rd albums together, but hey ho. Rattus was and still is a great album, but i always loved Black & White. Have both on vinyl and it was about time I got a cd version.
Excellent trip down memory lane.
