Add to Wishlist

Whilst working in the store the other day - locked down - Richie was curious 'bout this powerpop comp but couldn't be bothered trying to track down every song so just cracked a copy and, sorry to say, there's now one less copy for Strangeworld customers to buy!

Seriously great tunes and the record has not left the turntable. Can't wait for volume 2 (and yes, we'll order more!)

The first installment of Mean Bean Records compilation series dedicated to North American rare, unreleased and obscure Power Pop songs! We know that’s hard to believe in an era where pretty much everything can be found somewhere online or has been documented somewhere. For this first volume, we’ve put together a bucket of tunes containing 14 tracks of pure pop magnificence.

For the most part, these songs have always been hiding in the shadows and just didn’t get the attention they deserved while never really making it past the regional market. Meanbean Records have brought these Power Pop nuggets back to life so that you can experience them for yourself – all at once, in one single place! This release is limited to 500 copies with the permission and cooperation of all the bands involved.The LP comes with Mean Bean’s own personal liner notes of each song, and a poster insert showing each band’s hometown with picture and more.
