These vinyl compilations, usually sold at a discount, may have been a marketing tool to introduce artists and their music to a wider audience. But, at their best, they were a real education and some, especially the Warner Brothers' two-fers, were also very cleverly packaged and artfully sequenced works that were places of many wonders. Join us!
