Complete your The Adverts collection. I bonded over this album with a local punk girl with liberty spikes back in the day. She was a hardcore punk one year and threw all her punk clothes away the next. I could never understand what was up with that. Very strange but she remained a nice girl and still enjoyed punk some. The girl gave me a copy of this album and I'd never heard of the band before and the album cover looked very strange and different for a punk record.
The Adverts Song The Great British Mistake Album Crossing The Red Sea with The Adverts.
A devastating debut, one of the finest albums not only of the punk era, but of the 1970s as a whole, Crossing the Red Sea With the Adverts was the summation of a year's worth of gigging, honing a repertoire that - jagged, jarring, and frequently underplayed though it was - nevertheless bristled with hits, both commercial and cultural. The band's original vision saw a rerecording of "Gary Gilmore's Eyes," a Top 20 hit during summer 1977, included on the album - it was dropped (for space considerations) at the last minute. Several early '80s reissues of the album attempted to rectify the omission by appending the single version to side two of the LP, but it was 1983 before the rerecording itself made it out, as a minor . hit single, and 1998 before Smith himself was finally able to restore Red Sea to its original glory, with "Gary Gilmore's Eyes".

Fire Records reissue the 1978 classic debut punk record 'Crossing The Red Sea with the Adverts'. Released after an ever growing live following and the string of successful chart hits The Advert's debut has cemented its place in punk rock history. More than that, though, the album defined and thus became the precious moment in time when the establishment rules of rock fell away, and new ones still had to be carved out. And by those brittle standards, the Adverts weren't simply crossing the Red Sea, They were parting it. Dave Thompson.
