AllMusic Review by

The Clay Records Punk Singles Collection captures some of the prime material released on one of the most important labels in Britain's transition from punk to hardcore. The collection is naturally dominated by Discharge, who have eight of the 22 songs here; there are also multiple selections from GBH, the Abrasive Wheels, and the Lurkers, plus one track apiece by the Killjoys and future goth mainstays the Sex Gang Children. While it might be better for some fans to simply pick up compilations by the individual artists for a more detailed look, this will serve those who simply want a more concise overview.
