Editor's note: if you were even semi-active in the Detroit Music scene of the late 1980s then you are familiar with most of the bands here. For me, being a Rhythm Corps addict, See Dick Run and Beer On The Penguin are the prominent names here. They opened up many a show for the Corps and though they were never favorites of mine they were justifiable opening acts and put on good shows. SDR were the melodic zany pop band, BOTP were the mood rockers and Rhythm Corps were just Rhythm Corps. Their exclusion from this record most likely coincides with their record deal with Pasha around this same time. Lemon James's exclusion, however, is inexcusable!

PS...I don't even know if Lemon James was on the scene back then. God, I must find one of her records!
