POINTS OF DEPARTURE 1984 V/A MINIMAL SYNTH / NWOBHM
This is a very rare (only the 2nd copy I have had for sale in 25 years !!!) and one of the most obscure in my opinion UK MINIMAL SYNTH / NEW WAVE OF BRITISH HEAVY METAL / INDIE POP / TWEE / PUNK compilation entitled POINTS OF DEPARTURE from... 1984, this is the ORIGINAL pressing and the first time I have seen this compilation for sale in many years. AN ORIGINAL, AND A MUST !!!.
The album came on the private RAMBERT RECORDS who is also known for many obscure 7" PUNK / SYNTH /NWOBHM single releases, catalogue number NRT 252, and this album features many bands that never got to release any other products apart from the tracks on this compilation, and hence the only chance to get them will be this compilation, and believe me some of them are better then many of the single releases, or many other released singles, THESE TRACKS SHOULD BE COMPED on the MINIMAL SYNTH / NEW WAVE OF BRITISH HEAVY METAL compilations.
This compilation appears on many MINIMAL SYNTH and NEW WAVE OF BRITISH HEAVY METAL collectors wants lists !!!
