LONG OUT OF PRINT....for this sale, THREE COPIES have been dug up.

From AMazon: David Bash has been power-pop's caped crusader for near eternity, and Bruce Brodeen of NotLame has been slinging some of the best CD's you've never heard for 15 years! This 3CD set (again, at the time of writing) is a mere $18 and well worth the investment. That said, there ARE about a dozen songs on here that I need not ever hear again. Without naming names, I don't ever want to hear Christian music regardless of how much pop it's covered in, making fun of Pete Best is like making fun of the kids who ride the short bus (uncool), and some of these bands need to have the line that divides what is a borrowed riff/homage/nod and what is a direct rip-off clearly drawn out for them. However, out of 66 tracks...yes, 66...that's a generally unheard-of good-to-bad ratio in a compilation especially since most of these are better than good...they're GRRRRR8!!

I've discovered over a dozen bands that I'll be pursuing further, Plasticsoul nailed one of my most favorite tunes by The Posies, the packaging design is out-of-the-park, and I can't hardly wait until IPO hits my town again!

There are bands on this set that rival The Foo Fighters, Fountains of Wayne, Green Day, and all of the past participants involved in American Idol (the deadliest cancer to the music industry). As an addition to my most prized possessions, this set will be in my collection forever!
