Record Collector - 100 Based on rating 5/5
Released during 2015, the first instalment in Domino's comprehensive The Go-Betweens retrospective campaign concluded at the mid-point of the legendary Aussie outfit's first phase. Beefed up by a generous selection of demos, B-sides and oddities, that initial box tracked the band's progress as they transitioned from the callow youths behind debut single, Lee Remick, to the seasoned pros taking a tilt at the mainstream with 1984's Spring Hill Fair.
Volume 1 also included essentials such as the Postcard single, I Need Two Heads, and theIr first bona fide masterpiece, 1983's Before Hollywood, so
its must-have status was never in doubt.
