  1. Thanks again Glenn, this is a playlist loaded with great tunes. My favorites were from The Purple Merkins, The Knight Brothers, Vernon Garrett (you should see his pictures on last FM, his pimp hand is strong!) and The Nevermores. I hadn't heard of The Nevermores, extra thanks for that one.

  2. Thanks Glen. Great playlist on this one. I'm digging the Elevators cover esp.

  3. And yet another great comp, Glenn, including home-town fav's The Shadows Of Knight. Thanks for all the goodies!
