Vapors - Waiting For The Weekend: The United Artists And Liberty Recordings cd box

(Cherry Red Records)

Regular price $35.00

although widely considered a "one-hit wonder" (courtesy of their second single, "Turning Japanese"), both Vapors lps contained several more should've-been hits; this four-disc collection contains both of those lps, singles & b-sides, a killer 1979 live set and a ton of demos and alternate versions from both albums (not to mention the nicely-assembled booklet!) - brilliant '79-81 powerpop that more people should've paid attention to the first time around!
