Punk Rock Rarities (Captain Oi! AHOY CD 120)
||If ever a Boys' CD was eagerly awaited, this was the one. 22 tracks of either unreleased or long deleted material, each one illustrated with sleevenotes from Matt Dangerfield. The CD kicks off with the original version of "First Time" which features an additional verse and chorus, that would later be edited out when finally released due to the logic of the day that long songs couldn't be classed as "punk".|
into that classification soon became less of a concern to The Boys,
as they went on to demonstrate that they had the talent and ability
to have a go at whatever musical style they chose, the proof of that
being the eclectic collection of songs that are assembled here.
