FACT > Upon its release in 1991, the “Palatine” box set attempted to represent the brilliant and diverse musical spectrum of Factory Records. However, with only 49 songs spread thinly across four CDs, the content of “Palatine” is somewhat lacking, and also oddly organized. While numerous tracks were made available for the first time on compact disc, some key anthems are missing, and only two tracks from the Factory Benelux imprint are included. On the positive side, the mastering here may be the best you’ll find for some selections, as Factory management was notorious for neglecting master tapes. Shortcomings aside, “Palatine” still proffers plenty of memorable moments in British indie music history.
