This is great value if you want to dip into some less hedonistic "Stranglers fare".
Rattus and Raven are still my favourite albums of the Stranglers, but there are a good number of "hidden gems" on these, if you give them the time.
Bought this over a year ago for c. £12.00. Had all bar the live album on vinyl.
Spain is one of my alltime fave Stranglers travelogues - also see Clouds(BlackandWhite), Bear Cage, Big in a merry cur,and numerous others).
If you want more besides there are other options over the UA and later years, and at (in my opinion) criminally GOOD value on line.
Understand the band are great live. Will check them out as soon as possible.
I have been miserly on the stars for the inclusion of 10 which I would rate as a 3 out of 5 - the rest -Feline,the live album and Dreamtime are 4.8 out of 5. Aural Sculpture just below my absolute faves at 5.5 out of 5.
