Five CD set. Extensive collection, produced in conjunction with the band, exploring the first wave of The Primitives' career, 1985-1992. Featuring the independent demos, singles and abandoned album sessions, three full albums, singles and related B-sides, cover versions, BBC sessions and material recorded live at Bath Moles. Also includes four previously unreleased recordings. Sleevenotes include fresh interviews with core duo Tracy Tracy and Paul Court. During the mid-late 1980s, few bands navigated the transition from indie darlings to mainstream hit-makers as slickly and successfully as The Primitives. Armed with a pocketful of two and a half minute, hook-laden songs and a loyal fanbase, the group found themselves catapulted from obscurity to the pop charts, via magazine covers and glowing reviews, and became a significant live draw around the world. Fronted by the enigmatic Tracy Tracy, and driven by chief songwriter Paul Court, the group experienced the heady highs and frustrating lows of mainstream success, producing an excellent run of singles and albums along the way.
