Bauhaus - 1979-1983 Volume One
Label: Beggars Banquet
As an introduction to the early part of this great bands' output, this is probably the best place to start. Drawing mainly from the band's first two records, you get such great, fractured songs as "Dark Entries," "Terror Couple Kill Colonel," and of course, "Bela Lugosi's Dead." This sort of dark mania would never be so easily captured again.
