Yes, Virginia (also some West Virginia also)

Another good set today, this one featuring (for the most part) acts from the state of Virginia, also a
few from surrounding areas, West Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, etc.....but for the most part the three discs here represent the region pretty well. Evidently (unknown to me until this moment) there is a FOURTH volume of this as well, it seems to deviate a bit from the Virginia concept (there are bands from California, Texas, Ohio and more sprinkled in with about half of them from Virginia and surrounding, evidently, they were really stretching for material by this time......anyway, I don't have it, if you do, please let me know and we'll put it up for the "completists".....for now though, I'll just put up the three discs that I DO have, they are all loaded pretty much (23-26 tracks each).

Not many familar names here either, pretty obscure stuff once again. Disc one gives us the likes of Proverbial Knee Hi's, Banana, Journey Back, as well as the sets namesake acts, The Aliens, The Psychos, and of course the Wild Things, not that I know anythinga bout any of them other than from this set, it is pretty good though, and I always kind of thought this region had a VERY indentifiable sound, although I would be extremely hard pressed were I required to define it.

Disc two brings us more unknowns, to name a few at random, The Panics, The Changing Times, Sound on Sound, and the Creations, among a bunch more, and of course I'd be remiss did I fail to mention that The Hazzards check in with a cover of that rarely-covered chestnut "Hey Joe".

The third disc is just as obscure......Perpetuated Spirits of Turpentine (can't make this up!), Bosom
Blues, Wilson Castle, Clover......on and on we could go. But this is a good set, little (or maybe no) overlap with other sets, and (at least from here) nothing but obscurities (good ones though)

As I said before, if you have Volume 4, let me know, but I think it fairly evident that the concept had to be wearing down a little.....I'm guessing (only guessing) that it's probably not great, could be wrong......calling friends of the blog, again, if anyone has it, we'll put it up.......if not, then these THREE discs certainly contain more of this stuff from yet another corner of the USA than any of us needs! Somewhere else tomorrow, not running out of this stuff even yet.
