"THE RETROS were arguably the best punk band in St. Louis during their brief existence. From 1978-1981 they wowed crowds at parties, VFW halls and bowling alleys with their infectious punk pop anthems. A couple attempts at recordings were made, but the Retros produced no official released during their lifespan. In the Spring of 1979, the band was the subject of a final exam for a friends studio recording class at Webster University. When the exam was finished, the Retros took advantage of the couple of hours of leftover studio time. They ripped through twelve originals ina quick, live-in-the-studio type set up with limited overdubs and only a couple of retakes. The tapes ended up in soundman/manager DON HOLLENBECKs closet and were nearly forgotten until now. LP includes the entire twelve-song session and the CD adds four bonus live tracks. LP limited to 300 copies in a silkscreened sleeve with full-color insert with photos, posters and notes, and includes a CD version." -BDR
