This 1st volume contains some of my all time faves. Including the creepy 'I like by Kaplan. The power-pop baroque of Tell me more by The David from 67. The awkward mini masterpiece Never mind by Elli. The dance craze 'The Rake' which is pretty difficult to dance to. 

The most insane and wonderful moment belongs to Calmilly by The Mission (The b-side is even freakier). Any information about this band in any form would be great.

2 strong albums of note are The Beethoven Soul and Bob Markleys 'A group' LP (which is technically the last album by The West Coast Pop Art Experiment Band)

Many will be familiar with a lot of the tracks on this comp. But its a nice intro to the series....
