DOA "Bloodied but Unbowed" LP

"Bloodied but Unbowed" came out in 1984 and compiled the best songs for "Something Better Change" and "Hardcore '81" onto one LP. I think this was put together as a way of catching up people overseas with these first two releases and Alternative Tentacles was the mastermind behind the release. My brother picked up this record and it was the one I loved most because we hadn't heard of the first two LPs. To this day I think of it as the definitive "Greatest Hits" collection for DOA. In 2006 Sudden Death records re-released this as a CD. Back in the day Jeff Bale reviewed the album as "This is probably the last D.O.A. release I'm going to like, so I decided to review it as a gesture of friendship and respect for a band that's made some great music and raised a lot of people's consciousnesses throughout the years. "Bloodied..." is a retrospective greatest hits album featuring re-mixed versions of material culled from most of their earlier (now out of print) 7" records and LPs, so it serves a very valuable purpose. And a lot of classic stuff is on here--from "The Prisoner" to "World War III"--so it would be positively stupid not to pick it up if you never got the originals. If you can find "Hardcore 81"--their finest hour--grab it; otherwise, this is essential." in MRR #11, January / February 1984. The songs on here are:
1. New Age
2. The Prisoner
3. Unknown
4. Smash the State
5. Rich Bitch
6. Slumlord
7. Fuck You
8. I don't Give a Shit
9. Waiting for you

12. 2 + 2
13. The Enemy
14. Fucked Up Ronnie
15. Woke Up Screaming
16. 001 loser's club
17. 13
18. Get out of my Life
19. D.O.A.
