    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: There are few bands more revered in Manchester (and revered *by* bands that are revered in Manchester) than Oldham's Inspiral Carpets. This collection features some of their best tracks, and some of their best collaborations and on the extended CD edition, remixes too. Essential bit of musical history.
