From the late 1970s to the early '00s, almost every year brought with it at least one Fall album. Throughout the careerof the ridiculously prolific British post-punk band, the one consistent element has been Mark E. Smith. With his unmistakably entrancing vocal sneer and oft-absurd lyrics, Smith is the hard-living heart of the Fall, stridently leading a nearly endless array of musicians under the band's banner.
Nowhere is the Fall's longevity more evident on the first track of this two-disc collection, 1978's "Repetition", a spare, lumbering song charmingly dated by Smith singing "President Carter loves repetition". As 50,000 FALL FANS progresses,so does the group's sound, moving from the hyperactive, bass-heavy "Totally Wired" to the refined punk-pop glory of "C.R.E.E.P"., which prominently features Smith's then-wife Brixon backing vocals and guitar. The second disc follows Smithand company into the late '80s and beyond, featuring the electronic-tinged "U.S. 80's-90's", a brilliantly rambunctiouscover of the Kinks' "Victoria", and the full-on dance track"Masquerade". For a concise overview of the Fall's long history, these 39 GOLDEN GREATS can't be beat.

Ok; bit of self indulgence here - few of my fave Fall tracks and a few vids for any other Fall fans
Hit The North
Telephone Thing
Mr. Pharmacist
Repetition
Victoria

And sadly missing off this compilation (I guess 'cos it's a cover (but then Victoria is on this) so maybe R Dean Taylor's camp wanted too much dosh - shame - love Northern Soul too).....
There's A Ghost In My House

I saw Mark E in a pub at the bar in Manchester in the early 80's - I said to him "Are you Mark E Smith?" - he said "Yeah" - I had no idea what else to say; so just said "Oh, cool" - bought my pint and shuffled back to my seat. If I recall I was in the pub via a Cramps gig.

Love new face in hell the high notes he screeches are a joy,shame container driver and big new prinz tracks not on it.

This is the only career covering compilation they've released apart from the (sort of ) companion 1976-2007 Box Set.
This is the perfect place to start for a potential Fall fan.
