The return of A Turntable Friend Records starts with an opulent 40-track retrospective compilation of their heydays in the 1990s. Peers of Sarah Records and Slumberland Records, but far from copying their style, ATF Records always had their own musical identity allowing for a roster as diverse as Boyracer (with Even As We Speak), Secret Shine, The Claim, The Ropers, Hellfire Sermons, and Lorelei. The Test Of Time is a feast of highlights from the long-deleted back catalog, plus eight unreleased tracks from the period. Many of the original 7"s and 12"s are highly sought-after collector items and several tracks appear. Indie guitar pop of the best variety delivered by bands from the UK, USA, Australia, and Japan. This compilation is a fundraiser for the William Wates Memorial Trust in the UK with all profits being donated. Features: Bomb Pops, The Claim, Love Parade, Hope, Lorelei, Boyracer, My Favourite, Vinegar Blossom, Hulaboy, Tea, Hope, Decemberists Of Liverpool, Hula Hoop, The Apple Moths, Feverfew, Sugar Plant, The Gravy Train, Juniper, Tree Fort Angst, Hellfire Sermons, Antiseptic Beauty, Eva Luna, Secret Shine, Remember Fun, Even As We Speak, and The Rileys. Double CD version comes in a gatefold sleeve; Includes full-color booklet.
