The Unknown Beauty Of The 80s Vol. 74

Postby Rissan » Sat Feb 02, 2019 2:05 am

This weeks Volume, although inspired by the radio show Spleen, took a journey by itself when I was checking references on Discogs. You know the recommendations offered at the base of an entry, well this recommendations took me to a lot of new names which resulted in new music. It was enjoyable and time consuming but also a way to kill the time in the wait of the singles, which finally arrived this week (but that is something for the next volume).

Enjoy this new volume:
