My first comp was a Manley ELOP and it actually still is first call on a lot of sesions. I think it might be good to start with fixed attack and release and grow into more control after you have a feel for it. Comps are dangerous in unexpierienced hands.

If you can find one, an Audio+Design (aka Audio Design (Recording) aka ADR) "Compex" (which was also part of their Vocal Stresser) is a really cool unit once you learn your way around the complicated controls.

Be aware...those were mid 70's British designs and not all units have aged well.
