The precursor band of unequal-known band "Stereolab" was founded in 1985 and held five years during which three albums, nine singles and four BBC sessions were (three for John Peel) was added. All this material is located in the box of the exemplary label Cherry Red Records, and at first glance it seems to be really complete. Only on closer comparison you realize that the tracks "Two Criminal Points of View" and "The New Left Review # 1" were forgotten. This is all the more astonishing, because they are on the licensed by Midnight Music Reissue of "The Enraged will inherit the Earth" (1998), who also appeared at Cherry Red Records. Also two demo versions of the tracks "The Funeral" and "Way of the World", which can be found on the 2007-pressing of "I am a Wallet" (also at Cherry Red Records), fell by the wayside. But that is not so serious because the versions anyway not too much different from those contained studio versions. Unfortunately, the rare "Celestial City" is not the infamous C86 sampler. Pity about the missed opportunity. But otherwise, my favorite label has again done a fine job. The 8-page booklet gives at least a rough introduction. And the 77 tracks are the best material ever came from England. What a pity that even today hardly anyone knows the band. Conclusion: An important box, and nearly perfect. But not completely perfect.
