1. V/A: D.i.Y. Come Out And Play – American Power Pop I
This is a great series of compilations. Unfortunately I found them so late that they were already out of print. Still I found American Power pop II and UK Power pop I & II quite easily, but it took a few years to find a reasonably priced copy of this. Even now I paid something like 17€ which is quite a lot for a used cd, but this one is definitely worth it.
2. Samantha Crain & The Midnight Shivers: Songs In The Night
This one got most air time in this household during the week. It’s not the best thing ever, but it does have a lot of really good songs and I like it a lot. A good start is to watch this minidocumentary at youtube, if you want to get to know her.
3. Gene Clark & Carla Olson: So Rebellious A Lover
I’m a huge Gene Clark fan but it took me a long time to buy this one. It’s not his finest work, but it’s still pretty damn good. Oh and someone please release Two Sides To Every Story. It would be about time. I would love to buy it, but it’s been out of print for a long time.
4. King Khan & The Shrines: The Supreme Genius Of..
A bit of rock’n’roll is sometimes okay.
5. A Camp: Colonia
