And, released on April 15, 2016 is a massive part of the bands legacy in the form of three box sets each featuring three discs:
Anthology Vol. 1
"Anthology Vol.1" includes three classic albums "Chelsea" (1979), "Alternative Hits" (1980) and "Evacuate" (1982). This era produced some of the bands most iconic work to date, releasing multiple charting singles including "Right to Work", Chelsea's debut single which was included in Mojo magazine's list of the best punk rock singles of all time.
Anthology Vol. 2
"Anthology Vol. 2" includes three more classics "Original Sinners" (1985), "Rocks Off" (1986) and "Underwraps" (1989). By the early 1980's Chelsea had already etched their names into punk history by hitting the indie charts multiple times and performing alongside bands such as The Clash, Specials, The Fall, The Police and The UK Subs.
Anthology Vol. 3
"Anthology Vol. 3" includes another hat trick of winners "The Alternative" (1993), "Traitors Gate" (1994) and "Faster Cheaper And Better Looking" (2005). This triple CD set is the third installment of a three-part anthology that includes the bands most highly regarded and iconic work to date. It is an absolute must have for fans of the band and fans of the punk genre in general. 2016 marks 40 years since Chelsea formed, proof that they have stood the test of time and that great punk never dies.
