Thanks to the memory and music collection of Jim Benson, I have now been able to obtain and share all five of the Jim Clevo Presentations compilations released between 1987 and 1991. While I will eventually discuss/review each one, I want to give you the opportunity to “listen” (see what I did there) to these collections and refamiliarize yourselves with them. They are:
Listen: The CMJ Music Marathon #7 Cleveland Exhibit Compilation (only cassette release)
Join Rivers: Can We Listen? (first CD release)
Another Listen Is In Order (CD release)
The Killer Blow (CD release)
Jim Clevo would go on to co-produce compilation CDs with the Cleveland Music Group (more on those later). These five releases contain a LOT of great music from bands who appeared on multiple compilations and from those who were one-hit wonders, never to be heard from again. I hope you will take the time to listen to each compilation and share your memories, thoughts and impressions of these snapshots of the Cleveland music scene between 1987 and 1991. Post here or at the Listen Facebook page.
