Wire's first three albums (Pink Flag, Chairs Missing and 154) need no introduction. They are the classic records on which the punk-era futurist's reputation is based. Moreover, they are the recordings that minted the post-punk form that was adopted by numerous other bands, but Wire was there first. It has been a number of years since these albums were readily available. The aim with these new vinyl reissues is to approximate the original statements as closely as possible, but with remastered audio. These definitive vinyl versions have the same covers and inners as the originals (minus the Harvest logo). 

1978's Chairs Missing represented perhaps the biggest conceptual leap made during this period of Wire and was widely misunderstood at the time yet it remains, to the band and production crew, their favorite ‘70s album. If Pink Flag proposed an almost cut and paste approach to deconstructing rock history, Chairs Missing proposed something more radical, a definite futurism with much less influence from it's antecedents. It was at once more stark and more lush than it's predecessor and has exerted it's own influence on the course of cultural history, having laid down one of the earliest (if not the earliest) blueprints for the genuinely post-punk aesthetic. It also provided Wire with their biggest "nearly hit" in "Outdoor Miner."
