Cock Sparrer - The Albums 1978-87 - CD Boxset

European customers MUST order from Captain Oi!

 

Released by Cherry Red, this 4 CD, 53 track clamshell box features all the releases by Cock Sparrer between 1977-87.

Disc 1 is the ultra-rare self-titled debut LP – previously only released in Spain – containing the singles "Runnin’ Riot" and "We Love You" and now comes with five bonus cuts that effectively round up all of the band’s earliest known recordings.

“Shock Troops” – one of THE greatest Punk Rock albums of all time – is disc 2. Re-mastered from the original tapes it now comes with the addition of the seminal ‘England Belongs To Me’ single. Bands such as Agnostic Front and Dropkick Murphys have covered songs from this album. It’s a masterpiece!

The third disc contains the “Running Riot In '84” album which featured the Oi! compilation album classic "The Sun Says."

Disc 4 is the band’s first ever official In concert recording, 1987’s “Live And Loud!!” which was originally released on the legendary Link Records. Again, it’s re-mastered from the original tapes.

The booklet features sleeve notes and pictures of all the relevant singles, many now ultrarare and expensive Punk collectors’ items.
