The Ultimate Power Pop Guide part 2/2

Here are the other four discs of this collection, apparently, according to a couple of people, the first
post track lists don't line up with what is actually on the discs.....I'm going to try to investigate that a bit, hopefully I can square everything, but you never know.....I am going to go ahead and put volumes 6-9 up there, hopefully things come CLOSE at least to matching.....we'll see, but this set is so good that we can listen NOW, correct technicalities later, I guess......


Sixth part (126->150) of the unauthorized best of the ultimate power pop guide. A few items are tricky-to-find (R.F & The Radar AngelsTheChicaynes/Patriots), some others (NumbersThe PopThe Cryersand Dancing Hoods) which are not available in CD format can be foundALL around the blogs. Finally, some CD's (Jim Basnight & The MoberlysThe Hudson BrothersArtful Dodger and Blue) are not the easiest items to find. (Try ebay).

Tributes or not tributes, you may like them or not. One way or another, powerpop has its roots in the past, and tributes albums willALWAYS be enjoyable in their own way. This is the 9th volume of the Ultimate Power Pop Guide, the one devoted to the tributes. Most of them are easy to purchase, only two are really tricky-to-find: Bobby Fuller (Our Favorite Texan) & The Left Banke (Shadows Breaking Over Our Heads). Both of them are out-of-print. Now for your info, The "Bobby Fuller Tribute" was only released in Japan, so try ebay...or powerpop criminal$ sooner or later.
