The first ever box set devoted to New Wave Punk loonys Radio Stars!
68 tracks of melodic mayhem!

Disc 1 is the band’s debut album, originally released in 1977 by Chiswick Records. A certified Power Pop Punk classic it features the UK Top 40 single ‘Nervous Wreck’.
The band’s second and final album is Disc 2 and features the single ‘The Real Me’ and a re-working of the seminal ‘No Russians In Russia’.
The third disc contains a variety of non LP singles, b-sides and studio out-takes, many of the tracks appearing here on CD for the first time. The previously unreleased ‘Beast Of Ankara’ has also been added as a bonus.
Three previously unissued sessions for BBC Radio 1’s legendary John Peel show plus an unreleased In Concert for the same radio station are what you will find on Disc 4.

In depth liner notes by Dave Thompson are a feature of the 24 page booklet which also includes pictures of all the relevant records as well as clippings, adverts, etc…

Each CD is housed in its own individual cardboard wallet and then packed into a hard back clam shell box. Looks and sounds great!
