Oh my fuckin' God!!! This is so amazing. Super props for including my favorite Jam song, one of my favorite Replacements songs, and the Pretenders, VU, Groovies, Cramps, Plimsouls, J & MC, MC5, and Roky. Your shoes must be really special, because this is one of the best things I've seen on this site in a long time.

Good stuff for sure. Question is that Evaporators track a cover of the Neil Young tune...

Awesome, love the first four track run on Side One. But there's great stuff all over the place as well. Nicely done.

The Evaporators track is, indeed, a Neil Young cover.

I can never completely write The Pretenders off 'cause of that one tune. Some forgotten faves here from Steel Pole Bathtub, Cavedogs and Girl Trouble.
