Various Artists | A Young Person's Guide To Compact

Remastered CD edition of the highly collectible label compilation A Young Person's Guide to Compact, originally released by The Compact Organisation in 1982.
Founded in London in 1981, The Compact Organisation was the brainchild of composer-svengali Tot Taylor. Chic, cheerful and redolent of hip New York label Ze, Compact's stylish and stylized roster included ice-cool Swedish model agent Virna Lindt, Neasden soul queen Mari Wilson, funk contenders Shake/Shake, American retro diva Miss Cynthia Scott and ironic pop artists The Beautiful Americans.
All these and more are featured on this wonderful label compilation, originally issued as a double album in a bespoke limited edition box (copies now sell for over £ 1000), the album rounds up early singles on the label as well as key album tracks. Rarities include the non-album singles Model Agent and Young & Hip by Virna Lindt, and a live version of Rave by Mari Wilson, recorded at a Compact showcase in London in October 1981.
The 71 minute CD also features a deluxe 12 page booklet featuring original artwork and Compact ephemera from the box set, as well as detailed liner notes.
