Rhino Go “Left of the Dial”

I realize that Rhino Records are now part of the evil 4 major record labels but I still have a soft spot for them and they still put out some very good stuff. One very cool looking upcoming release is “Left of the Dial: Dispatches from the ‘80s Underground.” Due out October 5th, Left of the Dial features tracks from the bands that you didn’t hear on the radio (at least not outside campus) in the ‘80s, bands like the Dead Kennedys, Prefab Sprout, The Replacements and The dB’s. This four CD box set looks to be fantastic with 82 tracks, cool liner notes, the works. It is stuff like this that I still say digital downloading just can’t replicate. Call me old fashioned I suppose.
