Live Ledge #148: Compilations

A few weeks ago, one of my favorite music blogs, Ramone To the Bone, unleashed a giant compilation mix (All About Girls, Vol. 2) featuring primarily unknown punk band s playing songs about the ladies. Inspired by the great quality of so many of these tracks, I decided to put together a show based around nothing but various artists records of these sorts.
Too bad I ended up having little time for tracks from this collection. Who knew that in recent weeks I had gathered so many other compilatons? The show begins with acoustic covers of primarily punk favorites (PV Undercover) before spinning tracks from a new Doors tribute record (A Psych Tribute to The Doors) and some great garage rock from a relatively old blog find (The Rebel Kind).
From there, we head all over the globe, stopping in Wisconsin (Radio Ready Wisconsin: Lost Power Pop Hits 1979-1982), Canada (Sympathetic Sounds of Montreal), Texas (Deep In the Throat of Texas), before heading to London for some fairly obscure blasts from the early days of the legendary punk rock scene (Punk 45, Volume 2). Finally, a couple of All About Girls tracks makes the playlist, but the rest of the planned material from this album must wait for another day.
