Rhino Records DIY Series
I've been listening to a lot of power pop lately and I thought that I upload the power pop volumes of Rhino's DIY Series since I've already uploaded the punk volumes months ago. But since those links are already dead, I might as well upload the whole set altogether - ALL THE 9 VOLUMES!!!
The DIY Series is one of the best compilations ever. It covered both the roots of both punk and power pop. And it's divided geographically which makes you feel that you were there at that given time and place.
Though there are artists that should have been included - case in point, the Clash. Though I heard that it was between the Clash's label and Rhino and it's not in anyway the fault of the Clash. Rhino really wanted the Clash to be included but negotiations fell apart.
Anyways, this is a goldmine so get it while it's hot!!!
Above are the covers and inserts for the set.
