.. but you need to hear the original albums. O.K. you knew i was going to say that, but even though the estimable Jon Savage has skillfully distilled Wire's first years, a lot of great moments remain, inevitably left behind, and Wire afficionados are sure to think the exclusion of Map Ref. 41 Degrees North 93 Degrees West perverse. Map Ref. 41 Degrees North 93 Degrees West is a peak for Wire, for post-punk, for 20th Century music and needs to be heard. It's only a few more quid for the three albums, which come with tons of bonus tracks, don't be stingy with this great band or with yourself!
