EDDIE AND THE HOT RODS: The Singles Collection: CD

A collection of A-sides from this legendary pub rock band’s initial ‘70s/’80s run here. As can be expected, the bulk of the hits—“Teenage Depression,” “Get out of Denver,” “Do Anything You Wanna Do,” et al.—can be found here, along with liner notes for each single. Been many a moon since I last saw a Captain Oi release and I was kinda worrying they’d called it a day. Glad to see that fear was unwarranted.
