there were a lot of great punk and new wave comps put out back in the late 70's early 80's that have vanished from existence.
i missed most of them, so i was curious what ones did you think were good?
interested in those ones that featured bands you never heard of before or since.
preferably punk and new wave, not hardcore.
not looking for the obvious punk comp with the dead kennedys and all that worn out stuff.

thank you very much and good day,shannon.

Just plucked two obscurities out of my dust bin. First one is on Ram Records from 1976 out of NYC called Max's Kansas City:

Wayne County - Max's Kansas City 1976
The Fast - Boys will be boys
Harry Toledo - Knots
Pere Ubu - Final solution
Cherry Van

Oops, somehow forgot to insert this quote on Nico: "The original goth rocker, Nico's albums are demanding and bleak, but map a unique and starkly powerful vision that has become more influential with age."

what made me think about it was the tracks and bands that didnt exist anywhere else, i was looking for a song that was only on an old comp called streets.
the song was talk talk by the reaction.

This is kinda neat. The Max's LP looks to have been reissued, possibly by Max's themselves. Check this out at Max's Kansas City's site...

It looks b/w versus the LP's original colorized cover. It's not that i
