Hi.I found this T2 LP in a second hand record store when I was in highschool....
An all time fav LP now days.... somehow misplaced it and later found a Japanese CD reissue...
I remember buying this in HS and LOVED it! Not quite "Heavy Metal" but...
Hi.I was SO HAPPY when I got this in College, maybe 1977 - a little late to the 'ABB listening party I know, but made up for it! ( I already had a few later records)
I had Blasting Concept Vol 2, which was all covers, if I remember correctly; Minutemen's version of "Ain't Talking About Love" was on that one. There was a cool St Vitus song on there too.SST comp From 1983

I think it depends on the particular compilation - its purpose. If the intent was to capture and provide good but somewhat underappreciated or unknown music, it can pay meaningful tribute to good art and be a beautiful thing. On the other hand, if it is just a “greatest hits” collection of already known music, it might be redundant and a money grab by the machine.Hi everyone.
I mentioned that sometimes people hold compilation albums in low esteem. Or at least, that's my kind of impression. Maybe I was wrong. Or, if I was right, there has been a bucketload of evidence put forth here to argue the case that compilation albums can in fact be wondrous.
Thanks for the replies.
