Romantics And Friends - 1980 - Midwest Pop Explosion

Angelo says in his magnificient blog:
"Wally Palmer, Jimmy Marino, Richard Cole and Mike Skill released their first 7" on Spider Records, the priva- tely-pressed single was a complete sell-out and was reissued a year later. In November 1977, the group went into the studio with Capitol Records producer John Carter to cut some demos. Later they met with Bob Segarini and recorded the songs that can be heard on the Bomp 7" and the Quark album "Midwest Pop Explosion"." (Power Pop! Criminal$)
Here is the Quark album.
Containing the masterpiece first version of “Tell it to Carrie”, includes “Running away” (that appeared in “Destination Bomp”), First in Line (first recording) and Let's Swing (unpublished) with the production of Bob Segarini.
Completed with Nikki & The Corvettes (two songs no more than 2 minutes each one), Stiv Bators and the Singles (don't confused with the actual Singles), we obtain one of the best compilations of the early 80's.
Essential for Power Pop fans.
