V.A. - The Best Of Dunwich Records Vol. 1+2

This rip is from another source but it was a request a few weeks ago. Both volumes were released by Sundazed in 1991/1994 and give an overview of mainly Chicago bands with releases on... guess... Dunwich Records. And it contains one of my all time favourite garage tracks "Project Blue" done by the "Banshees".
