Yet an-other list?
Yup, those damn bloggers keep spreadin' unjustifiably unheard music around the world for almost zilch reward.
Remember those almost iron-clad caveats:
- avoid full versions of readily available releases
- offer full releases (single, e.p. or album) with artwork
- give a write-up offering at least some context
This is an actual picture of the collection(or some portion thereof).

Due to my own limitations, many great bloggers are not represented here - find more musical spadework in my blogroll.
Thanks to for keeping tabs on so much of what goes up.
Just to add a great singles post, here' s Scotland's Rezillos (more here) with their slightly muddy 1978 BBC Sessions which includes a revamped "I Can't Stand My Baby".
