V/A Raging Sun LP

Probably the very first release on Leeds label Rouska Records. A lot of diverse stuff on this one here.
The first 2 tracks are Mel-O-Tones related I think. Some tracks have already been issued on other releases like the ones of Shop Assistants, The Inca Babies, Bogshed and Party Day (title track of their 2nd 7"). Spig is spoken word.
I know of 2 different sleeves of this record. I think my copy is the most common one. There's no release date mentioned but I guess it was released in 1985.

1985, I'd say. The Bogshed track is actually a different recording to the one that appeared on their debut EP.

Any chance of re-upping "Raging Sun"? "Toxteth Ablaze" holds a place in my heart for a certain time!
