Well, this is is something incredible. A new compilation album with unreleased songs (in some cases taken from casette) that captures the unbeatable spirit and energy of Dolly Mixture. Early recordings mix their winning punk attitude, 60's pop hooks galore and joyous originality which makes Dolly Mixture sound so fresh 41 years after they formed.

This album has been pieced together from original tapes and 1/4 inch masters. Side A is raw recordings and it just adds extra grit to the sweet indie pop delights of Dolly Mixture. Among the 11 tracks are two tracks that were recorded in 1978 at Spaceward Studios and intended as their debut 7", an alternate recording of How Come You’re Such A Hit With The Boys, Jane?, Covers of the Velvets Femme Fatale, Mott the Hoople's Foxy Foxy, Love Affair's Rainbow Valley, a Demo for Paul Weller's Respond Records plus five tracks recorded in 1984. These were the band’s final recording session and recorded at Treetop Studios, Suffolk. All tracks on vinyl for the first time.
