Strange at only 60 pages. A search on the ISBN number for the book brings up this http://isbndb.com/d/book/the_wildhearts_albums.html

..... which gives next to nothing else away!!!
Too many fucking bubbles man!

Is that one of those from that dodgy company who just print out wikipedia pages on a subject, bang 'em in a folder, and send them out as a "book"? I was reading about this a few weeks ago, can't find the link though.

Yup. Ordered both booklets "The Wildhearts Songs" (42 pages - and should be titled The Wildhearts Singles) and "The Wildhearts Albums" (52 pages). Received them this morning. Just web info that you can look up any time. Published by Books LLC, Memphis, Tennessee, USA 2010. Should have been a single volume. Completely useless to anyone who follows this board. I was (obviously) hoping for a lot more info on the various albums and songs included. Very incomplete as it doesn't even include everything that's out there (and not a single mention of Ginger's solo catalogue). Surprisingly, no album cover artwork (or pix of any kind). It does cover "Chutzpah" and mentions "Chutzpah Jnr" but doesn't include a trax listing for Jnr other than to say it includes the Japanese "Chutzpah" bonus trax.

What can I say... guess I'm just a sucker.
Hope this helps those who haven't already ordered these.

to be honest I'm not surprised - a quick look on amazon revealed these as just some of the titles by the same publisher/format

should have done more of a check myself. I'm usually more thorough, but when it comes to the Wildhearts I think "buy" first, but will be more careful next time. hope this warning keeps anyone else from wasting their money on these bogus so called "books".
