I'm a huge Durutti Column fan, and I can back up a23's recommendation of the early albums that you don't list (LC and Another Setting) both of which feature extra tracks if you get the Factory Too CDs.

Other albums that you don't have but might like depend on how much you need to hear Vini playing guitar - if you like Obey the Time, you should enjoy Fidelity and Circuses and Bread (this one also sounds a bit like Without Mercy, except it has vocals) or the 1989 album called Vini Reilly.

But if you like Sex and Death, and the more guitar-heavy sound, then you might consider Live at the Venue which is available on CD via Kooky.

[edit: hang on - I think this might have sold out!]

One more thing - get to see them live! Vini has never sounded better, and he's currently giving it some real molten-lava guitar welly as well as those delicate filigrees of impossible fingering for which he's better known.

A national treasure!
