L.A. post punk scene was one of my favourite during the 80s and this compilation was the corner stone of this scene. Very rare in our days, it was released by the Italian Viva label and was the label's first release. It covers a period of about 5 years (1980-1985). In 1989 Viva Records released the second volume which you can find it on lost-in-tyme blog and it covers the second period of the scene (1986-1989). The only problem if you download these two compilations is that you miss the excellent insert books they offer with info, discographies, photos and texts about the groups and labels that create this scene. So if you find them in a record store buy them and pay without hesitation. Their original vinyl editions are treasures. Here you can enjoy only its music part.
For those who can read greek take a look at another blog I write in which you can find my personal top ten list of albums from L.A. post punk scene.
