Southern Comfort III LP 1983
Label: Spectrum #: ASPEC 003 Country: England
Info: One in a series of four Kent area "rock" compilations. The first in the series was specifically a "rock compilation" while the second was a "dance compilation", presumably of no interest to us. With volumes 3 and 4 the focus shifted back to rock. While volumes 1 and 3 are very hard to find, they are still much more common than volumes 2 and 4.

(bold = exclusive track / normal = non-exclusive track / italic = non-metal)



Side A:
1. DEUCE - Madhouse Parts 1/2
  If it were a separate song, Part 1 would be a disposable commerical number. Fortunately, Part 2 is a much better piece in the vein of ANGEL WITCH.
2. DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA - Sweet Dreams
  Indie rock.
3. DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA - Goodbye
  Gothic leaning indie rock.
4. EXERCISE 1 - Time To Choose
  Indie rock.

Side B:
1. QUEST - In My Back Garden
  Female fronted melodic rock.
2. QUEST - Want Your Loving Tonight
  Punkier than their other song, but still not quite hard rock.
3. EXILES - Virgo Girls
  Alternative pop/rock.
4. EXILES - The Bigger They Are
  Alternative rock.
5. WAR DOG - Wheels On The Road
  Average NWOBHM with a weak southern rock sounding chorus.
6. WAR DOG - I've Been Running
  A more substantial song that sounds a bit like AFTER DARK.
7. DOOM WATCH - Devils Dream
  Enjoyable upbeat NWOBHM with a nice heavy guitar sound.
