AllMusic Review by

Released directly after the band's expiry after too many rows with their notorious skinhead following, this features all of the singles (with the exception of "I Don't Wanna," their independent debut on Step Forward) plus selected B-sides such as "Hey Little Rich Boy" and the wonderful "Sunday Morning Nightmare," which is Pursey's tribute to working-class family life, or what's left of it, on the morning after the night before. Really, one very good live album aside, this is as much Sham 69 as anyone needs in their life.
