This compilation chronicles the style that happened right after punk rock, when some of the bands learned how to play their instruments a little better and started borrowing melodies and harmonies from old '60s pop records. This marriage of melody and energy spawned a couple years' worth of exciting music and a lot of it happened on Bomp during the years 1979-1981.  Every one of these 25 songs is a bona-fide classic, including bands like The Romantics, The Real Kids, The Flamin' Groovies, Shoes, 20/20, The Nerves, Pointed Sticks, The Zeros, The Last, and The Plimsouls. These are mostly tracks not otherwise available on CD, and a couple never never been released before in this country. Includes lots of photos and info. (Greg Shaw)
