The Best Of Propaganda
Format: Audio CD|Change
Price:£6.93+ Free shipping with Amazon Prime


on 26 October 2013
Whilst there is nothing unreleased here, it does seem justified to have a 2-cd compilation. This is quite a good companion release to Noise & Girls (which included some unreleased versions) despite a few overlaps, and also brings together versions of all tracks on Secret Wish and most of Wishful Thinking! These are from the remastered ZTT/Salvo releases so the sound is great throughout, and the alternative track-listing makes this a worthwhile addition to any fan's collection. Initial pressings were mispressed so CD2 played the same 14 tracks as CD1, although the label and matrix were different - but the copy I have recently purchased on Amazon is fine, as the Record Company did a re-press early October.

The dubs/instrumentals and extended versions are often quite challenging, so CD1 is closer to a traditional best of, but CD2 is just as worthwhile. You get some new liner notes (Thein unfortunately passed away earlier this year) and a small foldout poster of the cover too! I would recommend this rather low-key budget release to anyone who had a passing interest in the band, purely based on the radio-played singles of the time, as well as ardent fans. Unusually for a compilation that itself compiles from recently released compilations/expanded versions, this 'Best Of' is arguably better than its recent predecessors - a rare quality!

I've been a fan of Propaganda since 84 and Dr Mabuse, buying all the singles, lp, cd, re-issues etc etc and I have to say that for the price, this is a must!
Yes, we've heard it all before but there are some great tracks and mixes on here and I urge you all to give it a go, even over the recent Noise and Girls Come Out to Play compilation
I stumbled across this from just searching around on Amazon and thought it may be a bootleg as there's been nothing on the ZTT website not on Salvo (well, at least when I ordered) - but it's all above board, great cover, linear notes and poster to boot - BUY THIS CD!
