2013 marks the 40th birthday of the Virgin record label, one of the most consistently ground-breaking and innovative record companies of all time. The anniversary is being celebrated with five highly desirable new retrospective collections containing all of the major creative and commercial landmarks in the history of Virgin Records.

Practically vibrating with nervous energy, this collection takes us from the menacing skank of roots reggae to the amphetamine thrill of punk with some surprising stops on the way. Celebrating punk’s enduring legacy and the first neon glimmers of new wave, ‘Never Trust A Hippie’ presents many of the sounds that fed into the consciousness of disaffected urban British youth culture during the dark, often troubled 1970s.
