There are some true blue stunners tucked away within this R.I.O. compendium, something of a 1988 state of the union for
Recommended Records' German outpost Recommended/No Man's Land, though you might be deceived at first, as they've mysteriously frontloaded some of the lesser work here. For me, the astonishing German unit Uludag (once very accurately described as sounding like "the world's first Chinese R.I.O. band") turn in this compilation's capper, though Biota, Zoviet France (not R.I.O., but somehow they got sucked into Recommended's orbit 'round about this time), Skeleton Crew, Proof Of Utah, Bittova/Fajt and Half Japanese turn in contributions that are not to be sneezed at. This lengthy CD has been divided into two parts.
