Inner City Sound is a 2CD set stand-alone companion piece to the cult book of the same name.

Produced and annotated by Clinton Walker and re-mastered by the master himself, Don Bartley  and including an extraordinary hand-drawn fold-out family tree poster . Inner City Sound provides proof positive that Australia contributed as much as anyone to the D-I-Y revolution of the late 70s/early 80s: Over forty tracks, restored to a virgin vinyl glory, that still ring fresh and true, a mix of classics and rarities, many appearing on CD for the first time. Bristling with urgency and originality, this is an instant classic twenty years in the making.
