Here together for the first time are the 18 tracks recorded by the BBC for the legendary John Peel and Janice Long sessions in 1986/87. The band were the darlings of the serious music press and enjoyed massive exposure through the mainstream media that resulted in a string of hits in the late 80's.
The CD features all the bands best known tracks from their earlier period including the alternative versions of their hit singles 'Rules & Regulations', 'Love Is A Slug', 'Spirit In The Sky' and 'What's The Point'.
Other highlights include their uniquely Fuzzbox version of Queen's classic 'Bohemian Rhapsody' that's sure to bring tears to your eyes and the timeless and much covered 'Fever'.
The CD booklet features exclusive photos from the band's personal archives, a complete discography with selected 7" picture covers, suggested band websites and the limited edition Fuzz comic that accompanied their hit single Love Is A Slug.

but to me this album shows fuzzbox for all they were and how i want to remember them its a great cd if you like punk and not so seriouse stuff to, well worth getting if you were into them and didnt hear it on the radio when they did these sessions!

It's SAD that their first album never was issued on CD. It came out in 1986 at a time when some borderline acts were still getting only cassette and vinyl treatment.
Fuzzbox's "Big Bang!" was on CD but by that time the band was working in a different direction (not that I didn't like it) and sounded nothing like they do here. Yes, one can buy Fuzz & Nonsense or the 2-CD Rules and Regulations disc but I wish their debut would see the light of day on compact disc.
OH I DO Digress. These BBC sessions are good for the Fuzzbox fan or someone who's curious. While I can't recommend the cover of Bohemian Rhapsody I do play tracks 6 and 9 quite a bit.
