A Brief History

In 2001 Zopf Records and Virgin Records collaborated to make a 5 CD box set charting the history of the PCO, remastering the main body of the band's work converting from the original 1/2" tapes.

This CD, A Brief History, is sold separate to the other four, A History box set, although they are designed as a 5 cd collection with no duplication of tracks between the CD's.
