"The Rarities Collection marks 25 years of Cherry Red Records. This series will include a collection of rare and hard to find tracks that were released on Cherry Red Records in the 1980s marking Cherry Red's ability to forge a distinct style out of introspective, willowy pop. This, the third release in our rarities collection is a first time on CD re-issue of the 1981 collection Perspectives and Distortion. This album was compiled by Mike Alway "to send out a firm message to industry and public alike that (Cherry Red) were a label interested in the style of creative artists and a force to be reckoned with." Compelling and completely original, Perspectives and Distortion contains tracks from Cherry Red regulars such as Ben Watt, 5 or 6 and Kevin Coyne, experienced veterans such as Lol Coxhill and former Scratch Orchestra member David Jackman and also recruits from the post-punk era that was just dawning such as Lemon Kittens and Two Daughters."
