Monsters of the Midwest

0
0
First of all, before I forget, someone asked if I have "Sixties Rebellion", and after checking, yes, I
do......next week sometime (can't remember who made the request, and to look would just soooooo much trouble).

OK, "Monsters of the Midwest".....while the "Midwest" is a fairly broad, general region, unlike the smaller, more intimate regions we've been dealing with, this set is four discs of TOTAL obscure-o's, I don't think there is a single track here that was comped on anything else I've posted, and if there are, it is very very few. Personally I think of Ohio as part of the Midwest, but nothing here from Ohio, instead lots of stuff from places such as Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, which is great because I have no comps for those locales, and just a small smattering from Illinois, Minnesota, and Indiana, which DO have their own comps......since I am such an incredible human being I am to go the extra mile and actually put the location of origin on each track for this one, I think it's probably important to some of ya more scholarly types.

Not going to ramble here about the various acts and tracks here, beacuse there is an extreme chance that you have never heard of ANY of them, save maybe just a couple......and, again, isn't that what we're looking for with comps of this type?

Wow, who'd have thought that Topeka Kansas, Omaha Nebraska, Tulsa Oklahoma, and the like would have such (seemingly) fertile scenes? ya never know.......I didn't get to listen in advance of posting, as I prefer to do, but things come up, and I'll listen to it tomorrow, probably haven't heard this in five years and nothing is really coming blazing back to mind as spectacular or worthless, so we can all judge together I guess.....other than this post all links are finally now caught up and should be working. I'll try to get these up tonight or tomorrow. I suspect it is going to be difficult for me to find any pictures of ANY of these guys in order to jazz up the look of the post, I guess I'll find out, well, now........Ahhhh, that wasn't too bad at all!
