Not sure how long this CD album has been available, it's not been on our
radar up til now but it looks pretty interesting in it's own rite!
Again it's available from Anagram/Cherry Red Records under their
"Various Artist's" catagory here
From Anagram's website.....
For the first time ever on CD, we are proud to present a comprehensive round up of the influential Anagram Records.
Anagram Records was started by Cherry Red Records in 1982. At that time the Cherry Red label had a very distinct image and a new label was needed to release records by harder edged Punk and Goth acts.
The name Anagram was chosen because it had no distinct identity, the image would be created by the music released. The first release, One Way System's 'Give Us A Future/Just Another Hero' came out in September 1982 and was a Top 30 Independent chart hit.
Another 14 of the tracks on this compilation also entered the Independent singles chart.
The Anagram label has now been releasing records for 23 years. With the various collectors series, also on Anagram, total releases, singles and albums combined, exceed 500. Many of these early tracks have never been on CD and are much sort after by collectors. The bumper CD booklet contains a listing of the entire Anagram Records catalogue as well as an extensive history of the label.
