I am a lifelong resident of Baltimore, although just a little too young to remember these groups when they were fresh. It will be cool to hear what Baltimore had to offer. Thanks a lot for posting :)

Peace and blessings.

I came across this album not too long ago in a record store and it was selling for about $45. It may have been a reissue? Either way, I thought it was still way too much for a compilation. Thanks so much for posting this so I can check it out.

I was from northern Virginia and only heard of a couple of these bands so this should be fun to hear. Thanks!

The Bomber said...

Yes...i think almost 50$ for a new comp is too much, shure a re issue indeed...hard to find an original.
Thanks sfdoomed for visiting.
And Hotrod, like most of the bands of Norhtern and west (everywhere!) from Virginia,worth listen!

Worth picking up for the killer "Lost in Time" alone! Thanks for this one -

The Bomber said...

Totally agree !

Nice blog!

I have this record. However I only paid about 17 bucks for mine which is a reissue. If you want, later on I can upload a lossless quality rip.

The Bomber said...

I can't begin to thank you enough for this. My wife went to karaoke here in the Baltimore area (Pasadena, actually) tonight and, it turns out, ran into some of the members of The Amoebas! I have the original (well, reissue) vinyl version and they wanted me to make a cd for them. I was poking around on the internet before trying to figure out how to hook up my turntable to my pc and came across this post. You've made a bunch of people very, very happy. Thanks again!

The Bomber said...

Ouh thank you for sharing the news!
Any pic of the Amoebas you have???

Thats why im here...to share.

Cheers

I'll take some pictures when I give them the cds (trying to make nice inserts and such for them) and send them your way. Thanks again!
