"Since most of these artist's LP's are out of print, it's nice to have a least one song by all these great overlooked bands. It's a shame that only big record company bands/artists are allowed to be heard on radio. If half these Bomp bands/artists had the big budgets behind them to promote them and keep them working and fed, we would have a ton of classic records flooding our record stores. To bad Greg Shaw (founder of Bomp) wasn't a very rich eccentric with and endless stream of cash to keep Bomp artist in the forefront of popular music. I'd much rather hear The Things and Miracle Workers new records every year (if they were able to afford to keep recording I'm sure there would be new releases from them ) than have to deal with new boring trends and lame bands to go with these boring trends every few years. The Things 'Everytime' still makes me wish they were still around making records. A GREAT band on a great compilation. Thanks Bomp!!"
Bomp keeps rock and roll alive
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Greg Shaw has pretty much kept the rock and roll flame alive with his Bomp label. This 2CD set is a great overview of the labels history. Power pop,gagare, psych-noise, its all here. Listening to this, you will discover what the essence of Rock and Roll is. Its charming, innocent, fun, simple yet complex. Hell, this is my favorite compilation after the great Nuggets album that Elektra put out in the 70's. In fadct most of these groups are highly influenced by that release. I say buy it!!!"
