The Adventure Club Sessions (KDGE, 1993)




This has my money for best North-American Radio Station Compilation. Ever.

These are acoustic recordings from the studios of KDGE-FM "The Edge" in Dallas, TX. Recorded from 1989-1993, all one needs to do is consider the high-quality of artists to decide if it's the best compilation of it's kind. Here's the track listing:

1. Ocean Colour Scene - Alibis
2. Frank Black - Old Black Dawning
3. Jellyfish - The King Is Half-Undressed
4. The Catherine Wheel - Don't Want To Know If You're Lonely
(a cover of the Hüsker Dü single)
5. James - Lose Control
6. The Cranberries - Linger
7. The House Of Love - Crush Me
8. Blur - Miss America
9. The Lilac Time - Too Sooner Late Than Better
10. His Name Is Alive - Baby Fish Mouth
11. Frazier Chorus - Cloud Eight
12. Frank Black - Czar
13. James - Maria's Party
14. The Trash Can Sinatras - The Safecracker
15. The Posies - Will You Ever Ease Your Mind
16. XTC - Blue Beret
17. The Lilac Time - Raspberry Beret/Kiss Me medley
18. The Lemonheads - It's About Time
19. Suede - My Insatiable One

  2. I had this cd when I was a teenager in Dallas, and I listened to it over and over. I'd love to listen to these songs again. Agreed, this was truly a great compilation.
