Powerpearls Volume 1
Plain black vinyl with white labels.

Not included in the first edition of compHELLation more for room considerations than anything. This series came out around the same time as Teenage Treats, and follows a similiar formula. The songs on Powerpearls are more poppy/mod sounding than most of the comps listed here, maybe even reaching into early wavey-stuff, but each record in the Powerpearl series has a healthy serving of the best in the genre. Picture sleeves and small blurbs about the bands are included on the back covers.
