Released by the South American wing of Universal, the digital download-only Hitpac 5 series gathers a handful of hits, deeper highlights, and less-known tracks from a given artist's discography. Not one of the compilations is an adequate substitute for a proper anthology. Instead, they function more like samplers. Pulp's Hitpac 5 release selects songs from His 'n' Hers, Different Class, and This Is Hardcore. There's also a live version of "Babies," recorded at a 1995 Bristol gig for the BBC, which is not a "proper" Peel Session, as listed (though it was originally included on The Peel Sessions).
