AllMusic Review by

This intriguing set collects the original versions of two-dozen songs covered by the Fall at one time or another, and it’s an impressively varied playlist, including cuts by the Kinks (“Victoria”), the Sonics (“Strychnine”), the Monks (“Shut Up”), Leadbelly (“The Bourgeois Blues”), Pete Seeger (“I Come and Stand at Every Door”), and Iggy Pop (“African Man”), among others, providing a mix of artists that is illuminating even without the Fall connection.
