Various - Calgary: Giddee-up Widdle Punk Rawkers
We're getting back to a pile of tapes that came to us from Mary-Lynn Wardle - tapes which once belonged to James Muretich. This one seems like a good place for us to pick up...
One the surface, this seems like a pretty choice collection. Even Gene Poole was thinking this was pretty much the best cross-section of the Calgary scene... until someone went and pulled out a copy of the Calgary Compelation, and realized that most of this tape is just that record. And then a couple of choice singles thrown in at the end.
Still, we can't pass up a tape that was touched by the hand of James Muretich. So, even though you've already got the original LP (and maybe the singles, if you're lucky), you should grab this lazy mixtape and let it warm you up on this super cold afternoon.
