The Housemartins: Now That's What I Call Quite Good (1988)
I will make the suggestion that Now That's What I Call Quite Good is really the only Housemartins collection anyone needs. It's a double LP of top album cuts, b-sides, and BBC sessions. It works very well as a collection, and it really means you don't need the first two releases, unless you feel strongly about the band.
I used to have a CD copy as well, but my then-girlfriend over-played it so much so that I swore I would never listen to it again, lest I decide to kill myself. That was one CD I was happy to leave behind. Somehow, I have the LP, and I have listened to it and managed not to kill myself.
