Re-up! by request from the mighty Chocoreve, no less.
THE summer compilation.
Originally from Mikael at the now-defunct Garagepunk.com forum.
This is a slightly condensed version (ie. my personal faves). I removed a few tracks that don't float my boat, and my original copy is lost in the hard drive meltdown... No matter, what's here is leaner and meaner. 45 out of 53 ain't bad, heh.

Too bad no one has offered this at a high bit rate for improved sound.
Just goes to show that de gustibus non est disputandam...I think you deleted some of the very best tracks.
Many thanks dear friend I appreciate !
@ Gyro: I wasn't lucky enough to get one of Mikael's cd-r's, this was his net share. A couple of tunes just don't sound right when they got downcoded...
Having said that, I don't think that bitrate itself is always the problem. As I go through old files,m there's some amazing 128 and 160 rips that were done on the Fraunhofer codec. LAME may have gotten rid of most artifacts, but it's not everything.
@ Anonymous: I'm not going to discuss the merits of any particular tracks, really only a couple that don't do it for me... I did play this comp at a party last year, and at high volume a few cuts just sounded too noisy, vocals buried. So they had to go.
I suppose I could have just renumbered the tracks and no one would be the wiser. Sheer laziness on my part.
@ Chocoreve: nice to know you're still kicking, would love to see posting again. Cheers!
As someone who has been creeping for this for a while now, I will give thanks for what I can get.
Good to see you up to your old tricks. Happy to see you posting again Pete
Wow....first O CANADARM re-animates, and then Chocoreve pops up as well?
Welcome back and look forward to seeing what y'all do with the current state of music blogs.
Also: Dgrador, could you re-up your Halloween 2010 comp? I'd love to give it a listen.
Here are the missing tracks (original files but partly re-tagged for my own needs):
I am stunned to run across your blog again! I gave up after the Poppers series fizzled to an end. I'm very happy that you're back. I can't expect the prolific output you once put up, we've all found other ways to stay busy, but I hope you drop us a note every few months.
