Various - Some Girls / Rebel Street IV

Originally, this was released in 1987 as a showcase of then current outré artists. It's OK but not as good as the previous three. You'll be able to make your own mind up but this seems to be that shark-jumping moment where the underground are coaxed out of the shadows with the promise of fame and money and go full-Butthole. Virgin Rocks, for example, were the very excellent hardcore outfit The Comes but decided that fairly generic (though adequate) NWOBHM was the way forward.

This is the 2010 remaster from Japan Record. It's not MP3.
