A Must-Have Rarities Collection From The Pirates of Punk

"Yes, this an essential disc for a few reasons.... First off, I always though it was Rat that handled the vocal duties on Burglar. After all, it's HIS mugshot on the back of my copy of Smash It Up b/w Burglar CHIS 116 on Chiswick records. ;) Anyhow, the Friday the 13th EP tracks are great, and hard to find elsewhere. ...Great cover of The Stones' Citadel. Disco Man is the Vanian vocal version, different from the Capt. version found on Collection and Damned But Not Forgotten. Teenage Dream is a great insight into the Algy-era Damned live set, as that's part of The School Bullies disc on Receiver Records. Try and find that one! A Sanity Clause remix, a live cover of The MC5's Looking At You, and the 'fiddle solo' version of Anti-Pope are other rare ones from the There Ain't No Sanity Clause 12". The wacky banter surrounding silly tracks like I'm So Bored(yep, I'm So Glad) and the Turkey Song is fantastic. Also, there's the 'double band' version of Motorhead's Over the Top, where The Damned play WITH Motorhead SIMULTANEOUSLY, which turned up on Motorhead's Bomber single as the b-side.Truly a must-have from The Pirates of Punk. AAARRRGGHHH!!!!"

"I think this is the only release Cleopatra issued by The Damned that was any good. This disc has 15 songs unavailable for sometime since all of these were released on vinyl. I like the song Over the top Motordamned it was only previously released on the Long Lost weekend best 1 1/2 LP. This cd also contains the entire Friday the 13th EP The Limit Club is my all time favorite Damned song post Brian James era. I recommend picking this up at once you won't regret it."
A GREAT COLLECTION

"Tales of The Damned is an essential purchase simply because it contains the full Friday 13th EP:Disco Man: a live favourite
Limit Club: one of The Damned's best songs
Billy Bad Breaks: good poppy number
Citadel: great original coverof the Stones song.The fact the album comes with more songs is simply a bonus. Burglar is a fun b-side with the raspy vocals of Mr. Rat Scabies. Looking At You is a great song and this a strong live performance. Sanity Clause is the usual Damned mayhem with xmas bells!I'm So Bored and The Turkey Song are throwaway fun, Antipope is an interesting alternative version with violins replacing the bongos. Sugar & Spite, Seagulls are instrumentals that you can take or leave Over The Top is a loud workout between Motorhead nad The Damned with Lemmy on vocals."
