Side A:
1. HALCYON DAZE - Hang On
  Indie pop/rock.
2. NEIGHBORS - I Can't Believe
  Pop.
3. JUST BONGO - Calling More
  Ska.
4. MIRAGE - Blind Fury
  The opening sounds eerily like SAVATAGE's "Strange Wings", but musically this has more in common with TOKYO BLADE. Overall a perfect mix of melody and power.
5. MORGAN & THE ORGANS - Dockside
  Crappy alternative jazz crap.
6. JUAN KING COMBO - Crazy Bout You
  Soft rock.

Side B:
1. THE PARTY - A Wonderful Discovery
  Post-punk that gets a bit TALKING HEADS-ish near the end.
2. GENEVA WALK - Latin Lover
  Boring indie rock for sad people.
3. DENIS REMME - Other Peoples Weddings
  Pleasant prog folk.
4. PART FOUR - Take Some Time
  Funky alt. rock.
5. MORTY COME'S FROM MAERDY - The One That Got Away
  Soft rock/R&B.
6. SWITCHY AND THE CIRCUIT BREAKERS - Reach Out
  Melodic rock.
