All kinds of beautiful - one of my most prized pieces of vinyl, and pretty much perfect from start to finish.

Might stick it on actually - will provide a nice respite to listening to this Crass LP I've just bought.

This album is Love

But there's no LP that properly covers the greatness of The Field Mice, because so much of their best stuff was released on singles and EPs. I wish there were a comp with all their non-LP tracks and none of their LP tracks.

Coastal by The Field Mice

This is close (a handful of LP tracks, but otherwise).

It's not really though. It's missing a lot of non-LP tracks, Emma's House being the most glaring omission. I just want something authoritative - is that too much to ask? Laughing

Where'd You Learn To Kiss That Way by The Field Mice

Well, maybe this? Laughing

I get what you mean though. Not sure if there will ever be a Field Mice boxset, but that'd be nice.

Wonderful album. "Letting Go" is a masterpiece - like someone mixed the best of New Order, The Cure and The Smiths into one song.

If you enjoy that, you will probably like Bobby Wratten's other band,
Trembling Blue Stars. The song All Eternal Things from The Seven Autumn Flowers (2004)
has a definite Cure vibe to it.
