The majority of the tunes here were released over the past couple of years (everything besides Cortex, Dyke and the Blazers, Lovage and Glass House--the Bob & Gene is an old recording that wasn't released until this year)… While mainstream corporate music seems to be at an all-time creative low it’s great to see so much good music being put out on the independent/underground level. As usual, all vinyl all the time. Volume 2 soon to follow.
