Overview

Cold Chisel started life as just another pub rock band, but it finished as one of Australia's all-time greatest acts. This disc provides the perfect retrospective of one of the seminal Australian acts of the early '80s. Cold Chisel was a band that was able to rock hard, but it also showed a deceptive depth and perceptiveness in their lyrics. They managed to record songs that covered not only a range of styles but a full range of emotions, from the bitter "You Got Nothing I Want" to the tender "Choir Girl." They wrote tales of drunken excesses ("Cheap Wine") and resigned sadnesses ("Flame Trees"), and their superb ode to a returned Vietnam War veteran, "Khe Sanh," is a song that will forever epitomize this period of Australian music. While the drug and alcohol excesses of Cold Chisel and their lead singer Jimmy Barnes are the stuff of legend, their music never suffered for it. These songs are classics, and to have them all collected here makes this disc nothing short of sublime.
