I found a copy of this record in really great condition. Anybody know anything about it? Based on the album notes, Q-FM and The String Shoppe had a contest of sorts with local bands, the winnners being featured on the record. It states over 200 bands auditioned. The only name I recognize is McGuffey Lane. Here is a track listing and comments from a website I found. Link to the site with a pic of the album is at the end.
1. FRANK PIERCE GROUPE - Livin' For You
2. GARY WHITMAN - Silence Of Surrender
RUSH-inspired progressive hard rock with some heavy riffs but unfortunately the completely wrong kind of high pitched vocals. Gary would form the band CITADEL the following year (see the Unity Gain DLP), who recently re-released this song on their Vintage Vinyls CD.
3. MCGUFFEY LANE - Stay In Love With You
4. GEOFF TYUS - Daytrain
5. THE BUTTONS - I Saw Superman
1. SPITTIN' IMAGE - I Can’t Wait
2. CHAMP - Got Caught In The Feeling
3. REFLECTION - Friend
4. THE MUFFS - Why
5. PAGEN BROTHERS BAND - Lay Down In Shanty Town
6. ROUGHRIDER - Country Rocker
Just what the song title says. http://www.thecorroseum.com/comps/qfm96hometown.html
