Listen - I already own all of these albums, all of the supposed 'best of' mixes, but this compilation is the coolest thing... all of the classic Pogues' albums tucked into a neat little package.

It is missing some of the 'bonus' tracks found on some of the original albums and EPs, and you don't get the lyric sheets or the full album/cd artwork, but all of the music you'd ever really want to hear is here (excepting Rainy Night in Soho, and Body of an American).

For newbies and the lifer-fans of the Pogues, this is a great place to start or restart your love affair with the motley crew. They haven't been the same since.

It all started with the rough and tumble Red Roses for Me. Crank the treble, and let this album wail. Waxie's Dargle finds Macgowan and Spider at their troublesome best. Where else can you hear a beer tray played with such grace.

Rum Sodomy & the Lash was the album where they grew up, and Macgowan's lyrics blossomed. This was my first Pogues album... a hand-me-down from my brother when I was in grade six. Pair of Brown Eyes is still as haunting today as it was then.

If I Should Fall From Grace With God is perhaps the band's finest hour. At this stage, the Pogues really came together as musicians. Gone were the days of learning to play the instrument the same week of the concert. Terry Woods and Daryl Hunt joined the line-up, and this really allowed the band to gel, and the songwriting to further improve. I dare you to not fall in love with this album. There is something for everyone. My favourite Pogues song of all time remains "Broad Majestic Shannon", but why pick?

Peace and Love was definitely under-rated and under-loved. How do you improve on 'perfection' like IISFFGWG?

Great Music for Great Price April 19 2010
By Andres Sanchez - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is actually the first review i have ever written in 34 years. I'm doing it for two reasons: 1) I see there are no other reviews available for this collection and 2) The Pogues are my favorite (folk/rock/punk/irish/even bluegrass)group ever.
So here it is: First of all the presentation of the albums was a surprise to me, the vinyl replica is very nice ( I expected hard case)all thought it doesn't come with any type of booklet or additional information. The first cd, Red Roses for Me is a little worn out on the mastering department, the bass is all over the place and sometimes there are ups and downs in the sound on some songs. This was a little bit dissapointing but then again these AREN'T the remastered series. Nevertheless from then on the albums are fantastic, the sound is great and well, so are the Pogues.
For any Pogues fan who doesn't own any (or not all) of these cd's this is really a great boxset, great music, great price.
P.S : If You really want to complete a Shane MacGowan collection I recommend "The best of the Pogues and "The Best of the Rest""( They both have a couple of great songs from an E.P that's impossible to find), plus "The Rare Ol' Stuff" by the Popes.

Hope this helped,

This is a nice little collection of the Pogues. I still enjoy buying CDs and this is a nice package. Love that Shane Macgowen.
