Having a friend who is both a collector and seller of fine vinyl can come in handy when you're looking for interesting and odd things to put up on a music blog dedicated to that. I recently scoured his collection to find a few oddities to add here, and voila! Here we have an early 80's synthpop compilation that is quite scarce, and fetches a few bucks on the good ol' Ebay. It cites 3 bands, 2 you probably don't know, and one you surely should. I found it odd that Yazoo would appear on this compilation, but then I don't own a record label do I? The ep is 'ok' at best, Sudeten Creche and Colour Me Pop are as obscure now as the day they started. Yazoo obviously went on to great success in the synthpop world. Is this a great ep to listen to? No. Is it interesting and nostalgic of the era? Very. You be the judge, it's just one of those things that would be very cool to have in your collection.
