“The Lost Boys: Hard-To-Find ’80s Albums” gives you exactly what the title implies: a rare or out-of-print album or EP from the ’80s in its entirety. Some will be from CD, but most will have been lovingly transferred from pristine vinyl culled directly from the Analog Kid’s vast collection. Whatever album I choose, it will be one that you can’t easily find a physical copy for sale on Amazon or in your local record store (if you even have one anymore). Death…by stereo!
The Judy’s were a punk/new wave band from Pearland, a suburb of Houston. If you were a teenager in Texas during the early ’80s, you either owned The Judy’s “Washarama” album or knew someone who did. I have no idea if the Judy’s made any sort of real impact outside of their native state, but “Guyana Punch” was definitely one of the defining songs of my 9th and 10th grade years.
Freshen up, my friends!
