Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Floored Genius: The Best Of Julian Cope And The Teardrop Explodes 1979-91 (Audio CD)
I was amazed to find that many of the albums that I own on vinyl by Julian Cope are not easily available on CD??!!
I therefore decided to buy this excellent compilation to bolster my Cope collection....it is, as expected, GREAT!!
This is, to me, the sound of my pre teen and early teen years onwards.....I became aware of this music as I began to buy records ( at Probe....of course) and then when I was a little older experiencing nights out in my home town..... seeing people who I thought were too cool!! too well dressed, too amazing for me to speak to....aahhh youth!
BUT I digress.....this is a great album and should be in anyone's collection and I would ask Island Records to re release some of the albums on CD that are no longer easily available.....
Cope is excellent and along with his later releases, and books....of course....should be discovered anew by the youth of today.....so if you don't buy anything else buy this.....it has the great Teardrop Explodes and Julian Cope..... so an excellent buy......
