B.I.D. Spells Bid

Next up from 1980, The Monochrome Set

My first exposure to the Set was hearing the Sneetches cover "He's Frank", and the first CD I bought by them was the compilation Tomorrow Will Be Too Long: The Best Of The Monochrome Set.

I was surprised the compilation didn't have "He's Frank", but it turned out to be a repackaging of their first two albums (Strange Boutiques and Love Zombies, both from 1980). A little misleading, but still a great combination with 22 of the best songs from that year.

Kings of repackaging. I was very fortunate to see an ersatz Monochrome Set, led by a real Bid, just a few years ago here in Columbus.
