Subtitled “A Las Vegas Punk Rock Tribute to 1977,” the bands here pick songs from that year and give them a fresh coat of paint. Most of the songs chosen are on target, except for “Margaritaville.” What’s next—Las Vegas bands all cover “Cheeseburger in Paradise”? The remaining choices are solid. There was the strange decision of some bands to musically quote another song by the same artist in the middle of their chosen cover. Not sure of the reasoning there. But, overall, I enjoyed this collection. Pick it up and throw on at your next BBQ. –Sean Koepenick (Squidhat, [email protected])
