The first and classic compilation released by Lee Woods RAW Records. Contrary to what you might believe there aren’t too many great tracks on it. You get the top of the cream and if you crawe it all then check out Damage Goods Records reissue of this.
Check out a very interesting interview with Lee over at punk77.co.uk: “I loved to help bands, so just about every Sunday I had a band in Spaceward studio. When it became clear we couldn’t release them all I had the idea for the Raw Deal album.“. Best track: Psycho’s Soul Train.
From the back of the sleeve: “Dedicated to all small labels, who are in it for the fun and glory-not just for the money.”.

i love raw records. (i know. i say the same thing every time you post a raw record…) but honestly, it cant be said enough.
he he you’re right about that Dylan ;).
i’ve got this vinyl and i still love to give it a spin
WANNA GET MY HANDS ON THIS ONE
I used to own this back in the 70Â´s – makes me feel real old to listen to it again….
I remember I somehow got a hold of a copy of this through a mate and loved it. The best track I think is Young British and White by the Phycos. Great track.
Fun that they take the piss out of the nazi skins.
where can I find the Killjoys 7″ on digi?
Wow. I designed the logo and all the record sleeves for Raw back in the 70’s. Believe I still have the Artworks in a dusty portfolio somewhere. Is Lee Wood still around? Good to see folks are still interested in the label.
Could have included Acme Sewage Co if the track was Too Much Hate. That track rocks!
