Once More, the Importance of Selection and Sequence Knocks Me Over

Re-discovered a retrospective anthology from last year collecting a particular style of pop from a particular small country — realized it was the same style and same country to which I am now devoting serious review energy for a new collection.

How could I not remember the earlier collection?

Well, there’s virtually no overlap in performers and while the 2016 anthology makes the style sound charming enough, it also brands it as minor — a musical footnote.

The new anthology makes the same type of music sound exciting, nearly essential.

Shouldn’t be surprised by this — after all, lots of garage-rock collections are for compulsive specialists only. Then there’s Nuggets.
