If you're after THE album to own as a Classic either of The Pistol's themselves, or Punk music as an era in our rock history, then look no further than this.
Down here in what many would regard as 'sleepy old Dorset,' we were as on the ball in 1977 as the rest of the UK with this album. Word went around about the bootleg record stall at Wimborne Market having copies of 'Spunk,' so nipping out from work 5 minutes early one lunch hour on market day to get one was the order of the day.
The sleeve notes in the booklet with this 'official' CD release say it was going for a fiver, but the stall-holder at the market sold his for a tenner, and with the buzz going around about it, it was the 'must-have' LP of the day and if he'd asked fifteen you'd have paid it. It was THE vinyl album to own and have as part of your collection, and when you hear it you will understand the reasons why. It blows the NMTBollocks album right out of the water, The Pistols were wired to the effing mains when they recorded these far superior and crunchy versions of the tracks you have come to know and love.
Now with 3 extra bonus tracks from the sessions and a slip cover fascimile of the original bootleg LP sleeve, the booklet gives an excellent account of the history behind the making of the tracks, which must see it as one of the few, or maybe THE only Classic Bootleg LP of all time!
Every serious rock and / or punk collector needs this one!
