“The official line is it’s ‘a sentimental journey through folk pop, DIT, new wave and micro presses 1961 to 1991’ but it seems like so much more now.

It’s a collection of songs which bands would kill for. It’s simply amazing.” [The compilation includes “Frozen Laughter” from Calm Before, the 1967 album by The Rising Storm.
