Released - 1991
Unlike many artists, when it came time for the Pet Shop Boys to put out their inevitable "greatest hits" collection, it wasn't at all difficult for them to fill a CD to the brim with genuine hits. (At least genuine hits in Britain and various other countries; in the U.S., only about half of the songs had reached the singles chart.) Adding to its appeal is the fact that three of the songs (described in more detail below) were previously unavailable except as singles, and several others were 7" versions that differed to varying degrees from the original album tracks. So Discography proved an excellent collection for the casual and dedicated fan alike. In fact, it was the one-two punch of Discography and then Very that turned this writer into a dedicated PSB fanatic.
