Comes with Mean Bean’s own personal liner notes of each song, and a poster insert showing each band’s hometown with picture and more.

Highly recommended and always sells out at the source immediately.

Volumes 1 and 2 contained seriously great tunes and remain a constant on the turntable. Can't wait for volume 3 to arrive.

Mean Bean Records compilation series are dedicated to North American rare, unreleased and obscure Power Pop songs. We know that’s hard to believe in an era where pretty much everything can be found somewhere online or has been documented somewhere. For this first volume, we’ve put together a bucket of tunes containing 13 tracks of pure pop magnificence.

For the most part, these songs have always been hiding in the shadows and just didn’t get the attention they deserved while never really making it past the regional market. Meanbean Records have brought these Power Pop nuggets back to life so that you can experience them for yourself – all at once, in one single place! This release is limited to 500 copies with the permission and cooperation of all the bands involved.
