Various Artists - Propaganda, A & M Records 1979

It was 1979, in between Punk and New Wave when this collector came out.
When I was going through my records this morning and saw this LP,
I said to myself, good moment for 'Propaganda', the Olympics
in China started yesterday and there are still some 'Hot Items'
to be discussed, the Tibettan matter for instance.
Give Tibet back to the Tibettans !
And how do you like this cover ?

tracks;

1 Granati Brothers - Go crazy
2 Joe Jackson - Throw it away
3 Joe Jackson - Come on
4 The Police - Landlord
5 The Police - Next to you
6 The Reds - Joey
7 Bobby Henry - Head case
8 Joe Jackson - Don't ask me
9 Squeeze - Slap & tickle
10 David Kubinec - Another lone ranger
11 Shrink - Valid or void

You should consider putting those pictures and track listing up on wikipedia. It took me forever to find a picture of the album cover.

what's your point exactly ?

Hi

I've got the UK Version of this and it has a different track listing!

Here goes:

SIDE 1 (All Live)

GOODBYE GIRL Squeeze
THROW IT AWAY Joe Jackson
COME ON Joe Jackson
LANDLORD The Police
NEXT TO YOU The Police

SIDE 2

DON'T WANNA BE LIKE THAT Joe Jackson
THE DOLL Shrink
HOLLOW SOUND Bobby Henry
WRONG WAY Squeeze
WEATHER STATION The Secret
JOEY The Reds

Amazingly, it's hardly the same album as 6 of the 11 tracks are different!
