Yes, I screwed this up........"MOVEMENT BBC RADIO"

Somehow the other night I accidentaly deleted this whole post, blame it on substances or whatever, and
got busy with some other shit, and forgot totally about what I was doing......anyway, I will touch on the highlights of this 2 disc set, about 90% of it is phenominal, thte rest is merely great......these are some classic (1977-79) new wave greats performed as Peel Sessions on the BBC......wonderful selections, great sound, fantastic energy, as good a representation of late 1970's UK New Wave as we could likely ask for.

What track on Disc 1 would we label a "dog"? Certainly not "In the City" from the Jam, "What Do I Get" from the Buzzcocks, classics from the Adverts, XTC, 999, Siouxsie and the Banshees, even an early Adam and the Ants number. Spectatular stuff, one of those deals where if I start naming highlights, I just repeat the track listings.

Disc 2 is maybe just a cut lesser, you'll still wish to savor every track: Wire, PiL, the great "Transmission" from Joy Division, also lots of the reggae/ska tinged music of the era as well: Steel Pulse, The Special AKA, Madness, the Selector and more......

Sorry for deleting this, never intended to, a few of my more rabid admirers in the bloggosphere have pointed it out to me, or else I never would have remembered......Glad I did, though, because I think 1) this is not terribly common, and 2) I think you're really going to like this one.
