Advertising Information for vagmusic

Stiff Records was a record label established in London in 1976 by Andrew Jakeman and Dave Robinson during the punk boom. In fact, Stiff Records is one of the British independent record labels that have been recognized for being responsible for the new wave and punk revolution during the late 70’s. However, pop and great rock and roll singles are also part of this label and its artists. Stiff Records gathered around 100 singles that were not necessary hits but were classical and really significant rock and roll songs.

Stiff Records Box Set is a compilation produced by this record label and contained in 4 CDs. The first CD has 25 singles by Nick Lowe, The Pink Fairies, Roogalator, Tyla Gang, The Damned, Richard Hell, Elvis Costello, Max Wall, Jill Read, The Adverts, Dave Edmunds, Wreckless Eric and many more. Some of the singles included in the second CD are “What A Waste!” (Ian Dury), “I Think We're Alone Now” (Lene Lovich), “B-A-B-Y” (Rachel Sweet), “Solitary Confinement” (The Members), “Who Does Lisa Like?” (Rachel Sweet), “One Step Beyond” (Madness), and nineteen more songs.

CD number three contains 25 singles, among them: “Israelites” (Desmond Dekker), “Mercury Poisoning” (Graham Parker), “Let Go” (Dirty Looks), “Stop The Cavalry” (Jona Lewie), “If You Need Me” (The Equators), “Allamana” (Desmond Dekker), “Just One Cornetto” (Pookiesnackenburger) and “Who Likes Jazz?” (Via Vagabond). Finally, it is almost certain that this set would not be complete without the participation of The Belle Stars, Tracey Ullman, Kirsty Maccoll, Furniture, Dr.Feelgood, The Pogues and other outstanding artists which are included in the fourth CD.
