Stiff Records was a maverick among British independent record labels, partially responsible for starting the punk and new wave revolution of the late '70s. Under the guidance of house producer Nick Lowe, Stiff turned out an enormous number of seminal punk and new wave singles in their first years, including classic tracks by the Damned, Elvis Costello, Graham Parker, the Adverts, Ian Dury, and Lowe himself. But what really gave the label its wild, original flavor were minor artists like Ian Dury, Wreckless Eric, Tenpole Tudor, the Yachts, Lene Lovich, Rachel Sweet, and Mickey Jupp, who turned out a series of raw pop gems that were everything good rock & roll singles should be – catchy, energetic, and memorable. Over 100 of Stiff's finest tracks are collected on this wonderful four-disc box set.

The analog refurbishment involves two of the most beloved rustic classics ever made, a high-flying debut, and a pair of experimental mind-benders.
Elvis remixes are notorious for dividing fans. Some love them, others hate them. Pragmatically, contemporary remixing of the Elvis catalog is critical for bringing Elvis' vast musical legacy to new and younger audiences. There is no doubt contemporary remixes of Elvis songs is anathema to some fans, particularly many older fans. However, as the massive success of Elvis vs JXL demonstrated in 2002, there is a largely untapped, predominately younger market, for well produced Elvis remixes.
