Release Notes
Too Young to Know, Too Wild to Care is subtitled as "The Factory Story, Part One," which isn't hard to confuse with the similarly subtitled Palatine series of compilations from 1991; that series divided the label's history into four parts. Six years after that series (and box set combining its four discs), London (in conjunction with Factory) issued a two-disc series covering some highlights and relative obscurities in the Factory catalog, much like the Palatine discs. As with the following Different Colours, Different Shades, this disc ranges from the label's beginning to its (initial) ending in 1992; also, there's a fair amount of overlap between the ground covered here and the ground covered in the Palatine series. But this smaller "series" is a bit handier and, as a result, less costly if more selective. Joy Division ("New Dawn Fades"), New Order ("Age of Consent"), Electronic ("Getting Away with It"), the Happy Mondays ("WFL"), and James ("Hymn From a Village") represent some of the heavies. In a world more judicious, Section 25's downer electro shock "Looking for a Hilltop" would be as highly regarded as New Order's best work. Others included are A Certain Ratio ("And Then Again"), the Wake ("Talk About the Past"), the Durutti Column (the rare "For Belgian Friends"), and Cath Carroll "Moves Like You." Despite being quite varied and a little scattershot, there should be enough here to keep just about any Anglophile pleased. Those willing to take the gamble will likely see that Factory had more to offer than its flagship acts. — Andy Kellman
