Not quite as definitive of their time as Brit-pop sensations like Elastica and Sleeper and not quite as inventive and enduring as Garbage, Republica made a splash on the charts with "Ready to Go" and then more or less faded away, for stateside audiences at least. The British retrospective Ready to Go: The Best of Republica may be somewhat surprising to casual fans of the group, who may not have been aware that Republica recorded a second album, 1998's Speed Ballads, which didn't receive distribution in the U.S. An even mix of highlights from the group's two albums, Ready to Go features two versions of the group's catchy, dance-meets-Brit-pop title hit, along with the follow-up single "Drop Dead Gorgeous" and notable tracks from the more complex, electronic Speed Ballads such as "From Rush Hour With Love" and "Fading of the Man." Indeed, the collection manages to gather most of both of Republica's albums, making it the only Republica release anyone curious about the band needs to own.

Three-disc, 64-track collection. The folk revival that took place at club level during the Sixties introduced a whole new audience to traditional folksong, while also bringing to the fore the concept of the earnest young singer/songwriter. When, by the end of the decade, centuries-old songs were being given a sonic makeover by the new breed of electric folkies (headed by the likes of Fairport Convention and Steeleye Span, both of whom are represented on this collection), folk music had long since escaped out of the clubs and into the charts. This companion piece to similar 3CD sets concentrating on the Irish and Scottish folk scenes focuses on the astonishing depth of talent emanating from the English folk scene during this most tumultuous of decades. Every facet of the English folk genre is encompassed, ranging from club singers and trad folksong revivalists like Isla Cameron and Shirley Collins, the post-Dylan singer/songwriter (Donovan, Ralph McTell), folk-based fusion act Pentangle, and even such turn-of-the-decade acid folk iconoclasts as Synathesia and the mighty Comus.

While it does not feature all of their singles ("I Do You", "Private Number" and "You Better Dance" are missing), it is a great compilation featuring most of their bigger hits plus key album tracks, at a time when people still cared for those. The Jets consisted of members of the Wolfgramm family, a Tongan massive from Minneapolis, Minnesota. True to the Minneapolis Sound of the mid-1980's, this is full of nice keyboards and synths with the guilty pleasures of a great hit.

Atlantic Jazz: Best Of The '50s is self-explanatory but I will explain. This is a Rhino compilation of music from Atlantic Records' jazz vaults, representing the 1950's. Primarily instrumental but featuring a small handful of vocal jazz, it is some of the best music the label had to offer. This was a library disc so since there were stickers and handwriting on the booklet and disc, there are no scans for it.
