POPPERS Vol. 7 1985-89 - V/A

POPPERS Vol.7 1985-89

Seventh volume in the 8 disc set, which is a direct response to the Borack 200 list of essential PowerPop albums.

The result is a mishmash, of obvious heavy hitters and no-hit wonders, from the days when it *all* was considered punk.

02 - The Vaselines - Son of a Gun
03 - The Smithereens - Blood And Roses
04 - The Tweeds - Part Of The Game
05 - The Finks - You Made Me Smile
06 - The Jesus And Mary Chain - Snakedriver
07 - Ukase - Jealousy
08 - Dogs - I Love Music
09 - Lyres - Worried About Nothing
10 - Watermelon Men - Back In My Dreams
11 - Wreckless Eric - I'm Not Going To Cry
12 - The Pussywillows - Turn Her Down
13 - The Chesterfield Kings - Time Will Tell
14 - The Dead Milkmen - Punk Rock Girl
15 - Lime Spiders - Can't You Read My Mind
16 - The Primitives - Crash
17 - The Sting-Rays - Behind The Beyond
18 - Fortunate Sons - Wastin' Time
19 - Mystic Eyes - I Woke Up In Love This Morning
20 - The Pandoras - Stop Pretending
21 - Fade To Gray - Land Of Love

I've enjoyed all of them, but this is my favorite volume yet! I sat in my car in the parking lot in front of my home for quite a while listening to it. The Mystic Eyes cut is a new favorite - played it twice.

Thank you.

Keep up the inspired work! It's got me thinking of doing my own comp set, too.

Addendum: You seem to have an affinity for the Mystic Eyes. Are you an FOB (Friend of Bernie)?

The MYSTIC EYES track was recorded circa 1995, give or take a year.

My brother, Scott Davison, decided to trcord a cover of this Partridge Family classic, so we did it up on a 4 track cassette deck in my basement.

Thanks for noticing!

@ Mister E:
Haven't met Bernie, but both he and Craig have stopped by the blog to say hello.

@ Craig:

My bad. Somehow I forgot that Songs About Tugboats was a '90s thing. Had it in my head that it was unreleased '80s.

It's still fucking great though.

Dgrador: Dates, Shmates!

Elmer: You built a set of shelves for Bernie once-upon-a-time, right?
