    1977 was a vanguard year for music, and Cherry Red does a brilliant job excavating and polishing the gems, both obvious and obscure.

    This splurge of hits and misses is a pure energy infusion. [Aug 2019, p.119]

    Despite its lack of Pistols and Clash this is an accurate representation of the year punk broke, which wasn't quite as great as all those of us that were there like to pretend. [Aug 2019, p.88]

    Unsurprisingly, the comp is most interesting in its lesser-known material found between bigger names. [Aug 2019, p.51]
