Pioneers Who Got Scalped: The Anthology is a compilation album by the American new wave band Devo. It was originally released in 2000, on the label Rhino. 17 of the 50 tracks were previously unreleased on CD, including B-sides, outtakes, remixes, soundtrack songs and spoken word material.

It's kind of a shame, though, that in spite of the generally fine job done compiling Pioneers, there still isn't a Devo anthology that distills all the best moments from their crucial early years, and throws in just the right (small) number of later singles.

The first of the two CDs on the Rhino compilation Pioneers Who Got Scalped goes down like butter, every song a classic. Two or three more CDs could have easily been culled from these same fertile years between their debut album and 1981's New Traditionalists. The second CD starts to lose the plot a bit as the members of Devo started going in different directions, primarily Mark Mothersbaugh's developing interest in movie soundtracks and scoring  . I have mixed feelings about this double CD"Anthology" from Devo. On the one hand, its a very goodcollection of Devo's essential recordings. They even included difficult to find gems like 'It Takes a Worried Man' and 'Doctor Detroit' - two of Devo's best you won't find on any of their previous albums.

Reviews:
  • Vit
Everything in this boxset has been remastered. The remastering at times can seem a bit bassy and lacking the higher end of details. Headphones is the best way to listen.I have this box and it's 100% worth buying.Of course the best Devo remastered set is "This Is the Devo Box" Japan 2008 (WPCR-12955/61).
  • Xtreem
Great compilation, and highly recommended for both beginners and collectors of Devo. For beginners, it's MUCH better than any of those cheapo comps and/or "Greatest Hits"-type things. For one, it offers a broad selection of Devo material, from the self-released Booji Boy singles, to 1990's-era recordings, and everything in between. For collectors, it has some previously hard-to-find material (like the General Boy and Nutra-Speaks spoken pieces, the soundtrack odds n' ends), and some new recordings (an excellent studio version of "The Word's Get Stuck In My Throat").
