Basically got this for the wonderful Shake Some Action and Blank Generation (already had Marquee Moon of course!) but there are plenty of other good tracks on here (Planet Clare, Sweet Jane etc). Only thing is, you can see from those tracks alone it's not really very Punk and the Yanks rather outweigh the Brits. Still, well worth the not very much money it cost.

HELLO! - THIS IS NOT WHISTLE TEST MATERIAL
i think that covers it - just a compilation of bands some/most of which never even appeared on the Whistle test - why has no one mentioned this ? - a cynical money grabbing ploy - if you want to put out a compilation of these tracks....fine, just don't pretend it is anything to do with the Old Grey Whistle test. Where do i go for a refund? - perhaps the trades description/ office of fair trading ?

The artists included are all great. As a collection most people interested in the era will have many of the tracks.

If you do not and want to dip your toes in the water of this era then it has a good mix of artists with some solid American punk and English new wave.

Some of the tracks are classics (velvet underground, television, stooges) some are not so well known (L7, germs). It makes the collection very wide ranging.

Overall though for under £4 it is an absolute bargain and the collection is really solid in content.

Although I have most of these tracks already. It was worth getting for the couple I don't. For £3 you can go wrong and although it's more US New Wave than GB Punk. It's a good place to start if you want to hear some of the lesser known bands from the time.
