Rather than a label sampler 'Getting Older' was released as a ten year retrospective in 1991 (one of the defining periods for Flying Nun) and contains a bunch of wonderful songs from those, who by this time, had become identified with Flying Nun and its unique sound. Containing acts such as The Clean, Headless Chickens, Chris Knox, Tall Dwarfs, The Gordons, Verlaines, The Chills, The Bats, Look Blue Go Purple, Shayne Carter and Straitjacket Fits.‚A perfect taster and great insight into the early years of the label.
