Dropkick Murphys - The Singles Collection
Hellcat Records

This is definitely for the fanatics out there.  This CD documents the
Dropkick Murphys' early days, containing all five of their out of print
singles.  They have also added ten live tracks on for the ultra fanatic
[i.e. someone who already has all the material on vinyl].  You can
definitely see the band maturing and refining their sound over the first
fourteen tracks, and you're then able to experience the energy of their
live show after that.  Plus, there is the added bonus that all of these
songs have their old lead singer [who, word has it, almost everyone liked
better than Al, the new guy].  So, if you're a fan of the Murphys, you'll
need this to complete your collection.  To everyone else, it isn't that bad
of an introduction to the band, because there is the old belief that a
band's only really good songs are on their singles...
