AllMusic Review by

Bus Stop, a small Iowa-based label, was one of the first American responses to the UK indie-pop explosion of the eighties. Since 1987, the label has focused on 7 inch releases by American bands, with the occasional British or Japanese group making an appearance as well. Fans of sixties-derived pop in general and Velvet Crush in particular will enjoy at least half of this compilation since it boasts among other treats at least eight songs by Velvet Crush members in various side projects, most notably Rick Menck's Springfields, whose "Sunflower" is an indisputable classic by any standard.
