V/A - Powerpearls 1 and 2 LPs

These LPs came out during the late 1990's flood of Killed By Death, Bloodstains, Teenage Treats, etc punk and powerpop compilations. Over the space of a few years there were a total of 10 volumes of the Powerpearls series released. There were so many of these kinds of compilations that there was a book and several websites created just to keep track of them and all the songs that were compiled.

By request I'll be posting the Powerpearls series since they now seem to be getting harder to find. We'll start off with the first 2 volumes.
