I really WANT to recommend this compilation. It’s greatly designed with a cool looking photo on the front of…yeah who? It’s small details like this that is missing here. A detailed story about every band and the recording is also missing. Too bad. Some interesting and fun stories by Duane Travis of Wax Trax and others is in the 6 page booklet.
My biggest concern about this release is the quality of the mastering job though. I’m sorry to say that it’s horrible done compared to the originals(those records I own and can compare with like Frantix, Defex, Bum Kon and White Trash). Listen to I Hate Toes here to the one ripped from the vinyl a couple of weeks ago. The difference is just too big. It’s noisy, thin and too much treble. Sounds like it’s a 128 mp3 rip. Sad sad sad cause I really want to recommend this comp to everyone since it got the whole EPs from Frantix, Bum Kon, White Trash, Your Funeral, Young Weasels, Gluons with Allen Ginsberg, Jeri Rossi, Rok Tots, Defex and Nails.
