Dreams Interrupted: The Bewilderbeat Years 1978-1980

The Glaxo Babies definitely earned their place in the long list of British bands influencing the angled sound of hipster groups currently enjoying a revival with the post-punk sound. While Cherry Red made the great decision to come up with a retrospective of the band's work, this is by no means a complete collection.
