The previous release in this series Auteur Labels: Factory Records 1984 did well to make a silk purse from a sow's ear of the material the label actually released in that year. 1987, sadly, does not manage to repeat that trick.

"True Faith": why bother? Everyone's heard it - "1963", "Touched by the Hand of God" or "True Faith (Remix)" would've done the job. A sub-standard remix of A Certain Ratio's otherwise excellent "Bootsy" is hardly a deal-clincher either. Quando Quango's unreleased "Bad Blood", we are told, was a victim of the dance vs. indie war that was apparently being raged between the Factory directors at the time. It wasn't - it was garbage. Oh, and the guy out of Meat Mouth, according to the sleeve notes, gave up his career in music because he was worried he wouldn't get a first class honours degree which, he says he did eventually get. Good for him! Pity his record was s***e though, eh?

Never mind. We do still have excellence in Graham "State 808" Massey's Biting Tongues, Durutti Column's "Catos Con Guantes" and Fadela's "N'Sel Fik" (sounding a lot like Peter Gabriel).

The best is saved until last - The Wake's groundbreaking "Furious Sea" and Section 25's "Bad News Week".

So - half an album. LTM compilations are usually much more inventive and consistent. Plus the sound quality's not great.

I'm not sure whether it was sentiment or legal reasons that stopped this CD from being as good as it could have been. But surely a temporary aberration?
