The Records

Hi, guys.  Long time.  I picked up a refurbished turntable a couple months ago, and I've been picking up cheap vinyl here and there.  This was something I got for a buck that really grabbed me the other day.  The Records, S/T.  It's power pop on Virgin, 1979.  It sounds like Big Star mixed with Robyn Hitchcock's Soft Boys, with a little Thin Lizzy guitar harmony thrown in.  They had a strong debut, but they only had the one hit, the track "Starry Eyes."  Pretty nice.  Pretty nice.

Sounds a lot like The Byrds. How good is the rest of the compilation?
