Various Artists [Bloodshot Records] (11 Albums, 16 Tracks)
Bloodshot compilations are a cheap and easy way to sample a wide range of fabulous sounds. Some of the bands and artists you've heard of, some you haven't, but it is always worth checking them all out. Most have more than 20 artists and are VERY reasonably priced. The overwhelming majority of these songs cannot be found anywhere else—people were kind enough to produce them solely for these releases. We kind of question your sanity if you don't take advantage of such an opportunity.
