Product Description

Unavailable in the U.S.! 1993 compilation featuring 19 of the Spud Boys' best. Includes their top 20 hit 'Whip It', plus 'Jocko Homo', 'Mongoloid', '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction', 'Girl U Want', 'Peek-A-Boo', 'Through Being Cool', 'Working In A Coalmine', 'Gates Of Steel', 'Secret Agent Man', 'Beautiful World', 'Whip It' and more! One of new wave's most innovative and successful bands, Devo was also perhaps one of its most misunderstood. Formed in Akron, OH, in 1972 by Kent State art students Jerry Casale and Mark Mothersbaugh, Devo took its name from their concept of "de-evolution" -- the idea that instead of evolving, mankind has actually regressed, as evidenced by the dysfunction and herd mentality of American society. 19 tracks. EMI.

This CD is great,if you want to listen to a good collection of DEVO,best of highlights. Not perfect in its choices,but thoroughly playable. For the hardcore Devonion,appearing only on this collection,is the "Whip It (HMS & M Version)"... a highly amusing remix by "Psycho-Slaphead".(Incorporating "Mutiny On The Bounty" and some killer techno-beats....quite DEVO!)

I'd disagree with the last reviewer in that the hits are the best thing here . Each one a classic , but the remix is a terrible thing to be included . It's mediocre and doesn't go anywhere . Even still I heartily recommend this CD for anyone who is interested in this in listening to something a bit bizarre

I got this album for a laugh after hearing 'Whip It' but the album was so bad I took it back. If you are a fan of Devo then you will like it.

De-evolution is everybody's business Jan. 8 2012
By J. Bynum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Devo / Hot Potatoes - The best of Devo: 19 of the best tracks from the heroes of all nerd bands. Great stuff. "Whip it" and "Girl you want" are here, but so are their fine covers of "I can't get no Satisfaction" and "Secret Agent Man". Five Star hits CD

Another great edition to my music library July 31 2014
By PervySageChuck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Another great edition to my music library! Why is it that the best editions of different albums seem to be made overseas instead of here in the USA?
Why didn't they ask the fans before compiling ?? July 20 2014

It's missing "Uncontrollable Urge", "Ton o' Luv' and "Mr. B's Ballroom"...... but DOES contains "Devo Corporate Anthem" and a "Whip It" dance mix ???????.... Like a lot of "best of"/"greatest hits"/"anthology" collections (especially of bands that I really have a history of following)... It just barely misses.

BUT... if like me, with most of your treasured 80's music is on vinyl or cassette... It's a good to have a CD to either download or load in the car for road trips. It still makes me happy... but again... just barely misses.
Singles & Remixes: Culture Club 2005 (Chi) (Rmx) May 3 2013
By Bjorn Viberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Singles & Remixes: Culture Club 2005 (Chi) (Rmx) is a a best of compilation of Devo and is a mix of post-punk and new wave and contains such tracks as Jocko Home and Whip It. One could easily say that Devo is not a normal pop group and often experiments on the verge between genius and idiocy. Truly a pop band that marches to its own beat. Recommended. 4/5.
