The Whole Story is a double CD anthology by Foreign Press, the Manchester post-punk group active between 1979 and 1988. After early gigs at legendary clubs such as Rafters, Devilles and the Factory/Russell, the band recruited Joy Division manager Rob Gretton to produce their first single, Downpour, in 1979.

Following second single Climbing in 1981, Foreign Press pursued a more commercial direction. The result was anthemic electro single The Great Divide, produced by Bernard Sumner (New Order) and Donald Johnson (A Certain Ratio), released in 1983. Despite management muscle from the team behind Wham!, and the release of a second mainstream single, the group missed the charts, and after recording demos for an album (again produced by Donald Johnson) finally split in 1988.

During their decade together Foreign Press recorded a wealth of material, much of it released here for the first time. Digitally remastered, this 35 track double disc set features all tracks from all four singles, as well as previously unreleased demo and session tracks. The CD booklet includes archive images, and liner notes by singer Ralph Bowe.
