Flashlite #364: Vinyl Junkyard 16

The Best of Bomp vol 1It’s time for another Vinyl Junkyard special of The Little Lighthouse. In such special episodes I play almost entire LPs that I found dirt cheap somewhere laying in some bargain bin at a record store.

Bomp! An independent LA record label that operated since 1974. In first several years of their existence, they put out 45s with power pop and garage sounds. It was founded by Greg Shaw, who passed away in 2004. They also had some compilation records with the music from their label and today we will listen to two of those records, one called Waves Vol1 from 1979 and other one called The Best of Bomp Vol 1, from 1978. Neither of those records ever saw volume two. Bomp Records had a mission to bring the true simple values of the sixties rock into the seventies, which they felt were getting lost in the commercial pop market. Their influence on underground rock and how to run the business of underground rock will always be remembered.
