SHARE: Best of Lost Wave Vol. 2!

Postby Passing_Stranger » Sat Jul 11, 2020 7:06 am

I see there are quite a few people here recently sharing lots of interesting compilations of 1980s music. Finally having some spare time, I'd like to join (or rejoin) this fine group. Over the years I've been a firm supporter of CD reissues of rare 1980s albums done under the label of "Lost Wave" and some others. The guys do a stellar job of preserving this music and I've got quite a few of their CDs already. And it is from them that I decided to get stuff for a new series of compilations that I called "Best of Lost Wave". This "best" is completely arbitrary, of course, but I hope will be of interest to the music lovers here and maybe will prompt someone to seek out some of these CDs.

Will be sharing one compilation per week. I tried not to clash with other series regarding song choices, though sometimes it's damn hard :D

01 - Tokyo Vogue - New Tomorrows
02 - Glass Museum - Dumping Cart Motion
03 - Jullan - Electric Day
04 - Trees - Shock of the New
05 - The Body Electric - Babies on Parade
06 - Planning by Numbers - Red Flags Fading
07 - Rezistance - Ground Zero
08 - Positive Noise - Feel the fear
09 - Minor Detail - 20th Century
10 - Nómo - Dance The Dance

Enjoy!

Guys, thank you very much for feedback - much appreciated! Always nice to share with like-minded people, knowing there are quite a few with the similarly great taste :D

Now, the second volume. The first one turned out to be a bit social in content, now a bunch of relationship-oriented stuff for variety:

01 - Virgin Dance - Night Call
02 - Sense - Escape
03 - Eternal Triangle - Nothing But a Friend
04 - Peter Godwin - The Dancer
05 - John O'Banion - White Light
06 - Dhuo - On Video
07 - Jon St James - Trans-Atlantic
08 - Mummy Calls - Sexual Desire
09 - Blanket of Secrecy - Something I Don't Need
10 - Beranek - Dancing in the Wind
