7799: Big Hits On the Underground

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Greg Prato
The Saints remain one of the more underrated punk outfits from the mid- to late '70s. Perhaps geography had something to do with it (after all, not a lot of A&R reps from the U.S. were racing to Australia to sign punk bands at the time), because the Saints have issued some of rock's all-time classics, specifically their debut, 1977's (I'm) Stranded.

The title track from (I'm) Stranded kicks things off -- and remains one of punk's all-time great tracks -- which is then followed by such other gems as "No Time," "Swing for the Crime," and "Know Your Product." Overall, Big Hits from the Underground is a fine summary of the Saints -- sloppy garage rock that's evened out by attitude and aggressive performances.
