SHARE: Best of Lost Wave Vol. 5!

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!

02 - Sense - Escape
03 - Eternal Triangle - Nothing But a Friend
04 - Peter Godwin - The Dancer
05 - John O'Banion - White Light

Seven months on, here's the 3rd volume of the series :D Again, all songs are taken from the "Lost Wave" series of reissues of obscure and unsuccessful New Wave albums of the 1980s. Some gems here, especially the Auckland Walk album, which is perfect and should be known much more widely. Highly recommended.

1 - TicToc - Twenty Questions
2 - Person to Person - Running out
3 - Alastair Riddell - Do You Read Me
4 - Dial M - Motionless
5 - Auckland Walk - Love Slides Backwards
6 - Play - This Little Girl
7 - Espionage - The Great Escape
8 - Moral Support - Hold on to Time
9 - Satellite Spies - Nothing I'd Rather Do
10 - Bone Symphony - I'll Be There for You
