THE REAL DEAL: GBH

"Nothing compares to GBH in terms of hardcore sound. Definitely much better than Discharge. I've listened to GBH songs for 15 years now and I never get tired of it. This is a good sized collection of songs although it did leave a lot of the other good stuff out like "Bellend Bop", "Boston Babies", "Do What You Do","Alcohol" and "Prayer of a Realist". On the other hand, it has quite a lot of the other tunes here that are good like "Generals" and "I'm the Hunted". To all the kids out there who want to learn and experience hardcore music from my generation of the 80s, stick to the old GBH which is this one. Get this CD and if you can find a CD of City Baby Attacked By Rats, by all means pick that one up too."
TIGHT, DEFINITIVE UK PUNK

"THIS COLLECTION EASILY DEFINES WHAT EARLY UK HARDCORE WAS ABOUT. THIS COLLECTION COULD PROBABLY GIVE THE EXPLOITED A RUN FOR THEIR MONEY. IF YOU HAPPENED TO COME ACROSS NEW "GBH", IGNORE IT- THIS IS THE STUFF YOU REALLY WANT!"

"....i first bought this title; i actually got it on casette ( i hadnt' bought into the neuvo idea of compact discs' yet.)it didnt' matter that i already had "leather bristles, no-survivors..." " city baby attacked..." and, "city baby's revenge" which is what this title is mostly comprised of. i grabbed it just because it had "give me fire" ' one of the roughest toughest punk singles that had ever reached these eardrums at the time. over all its a great comp. 'it takes you thru thier earliest efforts all the way to the brink of when Charged G.B.H. fully matured into just straight G.B.H.! the almighty clay years."
