Sounds Showcase 2 (one of a three part series) was ostensibly given away as a bonus with an issue of Sounds magazine back in 1987. The Shop Assistants lead things off with a satisfying cover of the Shangri-las "Train From Kansas City," a good two years before Superchunk made it cool. I never really got into The Woodentops (though I made a sincere effort awhile back). "Love Train" is not a retread of the O'Jays, but apparently an original Woodentops composition, recorded live for Westward One. Mighty Lemon Drops' "Hear Me Call" made the leap to their 1988 World Without End album, but this versions sounds slightly different. Possibly unmixed or maybe a demo. I like it. Though the sleeve of this record states that all tracks were exclusive to Sounds, the Icicle Works "Don't Let it Rain On My Parade" was easily locatable on the CD version of their If You Want to Defeat You Enemy... LP.
