Product Description

Remarkable 2008 five CD box by The Pogues, at least three quarters of which comprises previously unreleased material while the remainder is made up of decidedly hard-to-find Pogues' rarities. Compiled by The Pogues with track by track annotations from Phil Chevron, there are a bountiful 111 tracks from 1983 demos (pre-dating their first recordings for Stiff Records) through to live recordings from 2001 Just Look Them Straight In The Eye is an absolute treasure trove of unreleased recordings for all Pogues' fans, spanning their entire career and featuring rehearsal recordings, B-sides, out-takes, rare mixes, BBC sessions plus recordings with Steve Earle, Joe Strummer and, of course, Kirsty MacColl. Alongside these are unreleased soundtrack recordings from Sid and Nancy, Garbo and Straight To Hell, alternate versions of Pogues' classics like "Fairy Tale Of New York" and "Rainy Night In Soho" and a generous selection of live recordings.

Format: Audio CD
This five disc box set consists of studio outtakes, rehearsal recordings, live recordings, and hard to find B-sides. Of the set's 111 tracks, three-quarters consists of unreleased material. Like most "posthumous" collections culled from recordings that had been left on the shelf, there are no long lost masterpieces here. Still, there are many good tracks and several hidden gems. "NW3," (a precursor to "Mother Mo Chroi") "Something Wild," and "Driving Through the City" are all worthy additions to Shane's body of work. The set's most outstanding track, "Aisling," was recorded for Hell's Ditch but inexplicably failed to make the cut. Subsequently MacGowan rerecorded the song with the Popes and released it on The Snake, his first solo album. The Pogues' acoustic version is softer and considerably slower than the recording Shane did with the Popes. Another delight is a portion of a fantastic live set, six songs in all, recorded in Scotland's Barrowlands in 1987.
Any serious Pogues fans will want this album, but I'd recommend newcomers start with the first five Pogues albums. Rake at the Gates of Hell: Shane Macgowan in Context

As a Pogues maniac I found this to be a trove of wonders. The various early demos of Fairytale Of New York, with producer Elvis Costello adding drums and bass, were alone worth the price of the set. Then there are over 100 more gems. The sound quality on early live recordings is less than stellar but is very good given the circumstances. The rawness is of course what we are looking for, as are the obscurities. The booklet is very well done and the package is beautifully put together with punky artwork.

Less fervent fans would be better served by one of the many "Best Of" collections.

An important historical catelogue of not only the Pogues, London in the 1980s, but also the background process of making a studio album.

The Pogues never made any money but they made generational music. The world would be a very dull place without the Pogues.

A simply magnificant collection of songs. A must for every Pogues fan.
