Sealed w/hype sticker on outside of shrink.
Four CD set. Limited edition bookback set gathering A-sides, the would-be hits along with B-sides, tangential 12-inch tracks (the C-sides), and an excellent session for Los Angeles radio station KCRW from 1989. Includes over a dozen indie chart hits including 'Southern Mark Smith', 'Girl Go', 'The Human Jungle', '16 Years' plus a host of truly eclectic Butcher tunes from his early Glass recordings through his time at Creation. This collection follows the much-praised 'The Wasted Years' covering his time at Glass and 'The Violent Years' at Creation expanded CD sets. An essential alternative world view, tracing pop culture through the kaleidoscope of the '80s and beyond, filled with a unique brand of wit and wisdom.
