“Perhaps we should think about Anthology like the Sex Pistols gig at Manchester’s Lesser Free Trade Hall in 1976. Countless people claim they were there but the venue only held 150 and no more than 40 were present that night – many of them, however, decided to form bands. In the same way, only a handful of people initially bought Anthology but they taught its songs to others and so, through a 1950s version of the oral tradition, its influence grew.”
