The album featured tracks released during the group's time on 4AD between 1982 and 1990, covering every Cocteau Twins album from Garlands through Heaven or Las Vegas. The collection peaked at No. 63 on the UK Albums Chart. All songs written by Elizabeth Fraser, Robin Guthrie and Simon Raymonde; except where indicated.
I find this compilation to be absolutely superb! The only gripe I have and it is a very subjective one, is that I would have liked more from the Garlands album! I think the pressing is flat, the white vinyl is beautiful! The artwork really well done and the sound is excellent.
Artist: Cocteau Twins.
Outside of college radio support and some late-night MTV rotation, the Cocteaus were basically invisible and unheard of in the . were a higher profile act, but they still remained more of a cult band with a rabid following
I much more prefer their 1991 "Sampler" - a more compact compilation, covering the same period. Maybe, because the 'Sampler' has most of the songs that I do like, and only one or two that I don't care for; this way I can listen to it without having to skip tracks (which would be kinda cumbersome thing to do when you play vinyl)
