I know that it's not really power-pop per se
, but the ROIR label, with their cassette releases in the 80s, were legendary for their roster, putting out music by such punk greats like Johnny Thunders, the Mirrors, the MC5 and the Dictators. Over at Amazon.com, they've got an awesome free comp called SO INDIE IT HURTS: ROIR ROCKS VOLUME ONE
, eleven free cuts in all.
NOT LAME has a great Dictators rarities album called EVERYDAY IS SATURDAY
--Bruce was playing this in his office and I overheard it and immediately fell in love. It's melodic, pop-punk at its best and well worth a listen!
