Stiff Little Fingers"Original Album Series"
Includes the albums
"Inflammable Material",
"Nobody's Heroes",
"Hanx!",
"Go For It" and
"Now Then...".
The 5 CDs are housed in individual mini LP replica sleeves packaged in a card box set.
Some people hate these I love them for they look great and are so easy to store- they take less space.

But the company have missed a trick here because only the last two CDS are remastered- the others are not and, unlike other similar releases there are no extra tracks.

So the potential buyer who maybe has a couple of the other CDs already is really not getting much if they already have the first 3 and the remastered sound is the only benefit of buying this cheap as chips set.

If of course you have not got any then you are quids in. On the other hand if you have then on vinyl and they are worn out or scratched then you really are on to a winner.

BUT to my mind the main market must surely be Stiff Little Fingers Fans who would buy it in droves if only it had those elusive extra tracks.
Don't you think that the fans deserve it?

We have here the first 5 SLF albums. They are in replica sleeves (much like magazine cover mounts) and packaged in a cardboard slip case. The quality of the cover reproduction is not great (having owned the original vinyl), particularly the debut which looks like it has been zeroxed.

I can comment on the 5 albums as follows:

Inflammable Material -
absolutely incendiary! Without doubt one of the most explosive and hard hitting debuts of all time. A classic.

Nobody's Heroes -
a strong follow-up featuring 'Tin Soldiers'. Great album which dodges the dreaded 'difficult second album syndrome'.

Hanx -
a great live album. I always felt the production was a little too polished.

Go For It -
an intelligent and accomplished fourth album. Strong, thoughtful and well written.

Now Then -
The curtain falls on the first part of their career. A strong, mature and cohesive album.

Really bought this because I wanted Alternative Ulster. The album that it was on, their first, is actually the roughest - as you go through this collection you can see a fine, fine band developing. There's a breadth and range of tracks on show here: bits of reggae, rock and punk all mashed together. I'm not keen on live albums, but Hanx is as good as they get, overall the best collection of this type going.

All albums are in their own cardboard sleeve in a slightly larger cardboard sleeve housing them all together.
But for this cheap price what can you expect.
Great value and would definitely recommend.

This was a present to my dad, he was very pleased overale. Delivery latter than stated was the only downfall but this could be due to the high volume of post with it being close to Christmas.

I have four of these albums on vinyl. These CDs have very good sound quality. Packaging is not fancy but I cannot fault the CD production.
