Back to Basics (Billy Bragg album). Back to Basics is a 1987 collection of Billy Bragg's first three releases: The albums Life's A Riot With Spy Vs. Spy and Brewing Up with Billy Bragg and the EP Between The Wars. This collection did not contain any new material, but did document Billy Bragg's early "one man and his guitar" approach

Life's a Riot with Spy vs Spy is Billy Bragg's first album, released in 1983. All songs on the original album consisted of Bragg singing to his electric guitar accompaniment. The original album played at 45 rpm rather than the more usual 3. rpm, contained only seven songs and lasted for only 15 minutes and 57 seconds. However, rather than being classified as an EP, it qualified for the UK albums chart and reached number 30 in January 1984.

The fact that Bragg was so well-respected by members of my favoite band made me want to find out more about this Billy Bragg. So I went out and bought Back to Basics. This is a good album. It's a collection of his earliest releases, songs that were released in the early 80s. It took me a couple of listens to get into his style, but it was worth the effort. The only insttuments on this album are Bragg's very British voice and his guitar, but once i got used to that, and started listening to the lyrics, I was hooked. A New England" is Bragg's lament of a lost love and is one of the better songs on the album. Upon repeated listens, other tracks stand out. "Like Soldiers Do" is Bragg's indictment of Europe's battle-scarred history. Our fathers were all soldiers/Shall we be soldiers too?" Bragg asks.

Back to Basics", a compilation of Bragg's first two albums ("Life's A Riot With Spy VS Spy" and "Brewing Up With Billy Bragg") and the "Between The Wars" EP is the one Billy Bragg CD I find myself listening to the most. Each of the 21 songs sounds rather sparse - largely just electric guitar and rough cockney vocals, with some organ and trumpet here and there. If you're a new Billy Bragg fan, this is the album to begin with. Even if you're not that enthusiastic about Bragg, I highly recommend picking this CD up. Pure genius!
