Another important Sampler : Coincidence vs. Fate

This was another important sampler for my musical education :

Coincidence vs. Fate

You will know some of the songs already as anonymous backdrop to something on TV. I bought it for the then horrenedous sum of 40 DM, because it was a japanese import. Nobody thought about the internet back then with everything available on your fingertips. But I never regretted any one of the DM I spent for these LPs!

Perfect french Pop by Antena, Kevin Hewick's Haystack! , DURUTTI COLUMN!, A Certain Ratio with Shack up, this took many years 'til it appeared on a compilation (or in this case a 7" with an LP), no words have to been lost for Paul Haig, Winston Tong, Lawrence Weiner (pretty weird), Anna Domino (fantastic!), Pleasure Ground and the Pale Fountains! Michael Head was such a genius!

Soft Verdict - Close cover - everybody knows this song as background to countless documentaries!
Anna Domino - Trust in love aka North and South and East and West
Pleasure Ground - Wait are excellent to prepare you for the Compact compilations!

You find the tracklist in the comments!

Coincidence vs. Fate 1
Coincidence vs. Fate 2

I just found out that two songs were not recorded correctly, so I did it again:

14 The Border Boys - Sorry

21 Paul Haig - Adoration
