V.A. - Colour Me Pop Vol 1 & 2
Piccadilly Sunshine Vol. 1 & 2

Let's have a short break with the Pebbles volumes and have a listen to some pop-sike. The "Colour Me Pop" compilations were on the same label as the five "Jagged Time Lapse" releases. The "Piccadilly Sunshine" series was a limited edition of only 50 of each volume and there are three more volumes around (which I don't have). There is also a third "Colour Me Pop" but I don't have it either. I've once got all these compilation at Soulseek and sadly no artwork was attached.
