Not included in the first edition of compHELLation more for room considerations than anything. This series came out around the same time as Teenage Treats, and follows a similiar formula. The songs on Powerpearls are more poppy/mod sounding than most of the comps listed here, maybe even reaching into early wavey-stuff, but each record in the Powerpearl series has a healthy serving of the best in the genre. Picture sleeves and small blurbs about the bands are included on the back covers.
