I played a very small part in the song selection for this compilation (by passing on a lot of tracks to Guy) so please note that there may be some bias in my opinion towards it. I do have some slight issues with the track ordering but this doesn't detract from the breadth of talent on display: I really do think that this is even better than the 1st release. The tracks from bands mentioned at this site are all excellent and I'm glad to see Scapa Flow, Brrr Cold and The Goat... finally get some recognition. The Melbourne bands have a distinct dance edge that most Sydney bands couldn't match (The Crush is just wonderful electro crunch) and the tribal/world element in some of the 81-82 releases is a real surprise. I really don't think there's a dud track on this one so thanks once again to Mr Blackman for valuing this old music so much.
