When they say "Obscure" they mean it in this case. I tripped over this snooping around the Bay the other
day, I've given it a listen and there is virtually NOTHING I was familiar with, previously.....information is sketchy, but apparently this two volume set is a homemade/DIY project that someone generously created......I guess most were taken from singles or EP's, it's far from the typical 1980's fare (ie NOT synth-pop type stuff in general).....I'm not prepared to go into a lot of detail, but those of you whom are like myself and are suckers for any collection of "obscure" ANYTHING, you know you want this......some, I'm sure, will take a pass on it, and that's great as well......just thought it was worth sharing with you folks in case it sounds interesting, I think you will be pleasantly surprised should you try this one out.
