OVERSEAS OMNIBUS

このページではエレポップ及ニュー・ウェイヴ系のアーティストのオムニバス・アルバムを紹介します。80年代ものオムニバスは多いですが、ここではお気に入りのテーマがしっかりした(例えばレーベルによるオムニバス)を厳選しました。まだまだあると思うので、ご存じの方は情報(アルバム・タイトル、曲名、アーティスト、感想、等)をお待ちしております。

ALL ABOUT JAPANにて『80年代オムニバス・ブーム!』記事を2002年9月25日に掲載。


This page presents the omnibus albums of Electro Pop and New Wave artists. While there are many omnibus albums on 80's, I selected my favorite ones with a consistent theme (for example, the omnibus by record label). As there are much more, I am waiting for your information (album title, songs, artists, impressions) if you know.

[1980] Ronco

A1. Ottowan: D.I.S.C.O.
A2. Black Slate: Amigo
A3. Robert Palmer: Johnny & Mary
A4. Gillan: Rouble
A5. Gary Numan: Trouble
A6. Genesis: Misunderstanding
A7. Korgis: If It's Alright With You Baby
A8. Slector: The Whisper
A9. Surface Noise: Dancin' On A Wire
A10. Gibson Brothers: Metropolis
B1. Kelly Marie: Feels Like I'm In Love
B2. Linx: You're Lying
B3. Odyssey: Use It Up And Wear It Out
B4. O.M.D.: Enola Gay
B5. Manfred Man: Lies
B6. XTC: Generals And Majors
B7. Black Sabbath: Paranoid
B8. Locksmith: Unlock The Funk
B9. Sue Wilkinson: You Gotta Be A Hustler
B10. UB 40: I Think It's Gonna Run

20 ELECTRIC HITSとジャケに書いてありますが、トラックリストからも判りますように、玉石混合。歌うサラリーマンRobert Palmerのこの曲は、超エレポップです。Gibson Brothersって知りませんが、「Metropolis」って変なテクノポップ。


While the cover says 20 ELECTRIC HITS, it's the mixture of jewels and stones as you can tell from the track list. The track by Robert Palmer, a singing business man, is a super Electronic Pop. While I don't know about Gibson Brothers, "Metropolis" is a strange Techno Pop.

Blitz

[1981] RCA

A1. Bow Wow Wow: Chihuahua
A2. Slow Children: Spring In Fialta
A3. Robert Ellis Orrall: White Noise
A4. Sparks: Tips For Teens
A5. Shock: Angel Face
B1. Polyrock: Love Song
B2. Bow Wow Wow: Orang-Outang
B3. Landscape: European Man
B4. Robert Ellis Orrall: Call The Uh-Oh Sound
B5. Polyrock: Changing Hearts

Blitzと表記していますが、zは本当はsのミラーイメージです。Blitzとはイギリスの当時のNew Waveクラブの名前だと思います。このRCAからリリースされたコンピレーションはイギリス及びイギリスでも活動したアメリカのNew Waveバンドを集めています。なんと言っても聞き所はLandscapeのRichard James Burgess率いるShockのニューロマ炸裂の「Angel Face」です。今聴いてもメチャクチャかっこE〜です。他にもマイナー系New Wave充実のお勧めの1枚。


While I spelled Blitz, z is mirror image of s. I think Blitz is the name of New Wave club in the U. K. at that time. This compilation on RCA collects British and American bands who were also active in the U. K. The very best take is very New Romantic "Angel Face" by Shock led by Richard James Burgess of Lands

Double Art Vol. 2 - Modern Dance Tracks

[1982] Ariola

A01. PETE SHELLEY: Witness The Change
02. D.A.F.: Absolute Korperkontrolle

04. TELEXHaven't We Met Somewhere Before
05. FASHION: Move On
 
06. THE THOMPSON TWINS: In The Name Of Love 

B01. SPANDAU BALLET: Chant No.1(Remix)
02. HEAVEN 17: He-La-Fu(Heights Of The Fighting)  
03. MATERIAL: Bustin' Out 
04. WAS(NOT WAS): Tell Me That I'm Dreaming 
05. AMI MARIE: Spiel Mit Mir
 
06. MATHEMATIQUES MODERNES: Disco Rough
07. JAPAN: Visions Of China

<荒.特派員>Island、Virgin、Arista、Chrysalis、ZE、Celluloidなど、レーベルの枠を超えた選曲が嬉しいコンピ。'80〜'82年までに発表された曲で占められています。知ってる曲も多いですが、簡易エレポのAMI MARIEやファンキーなWAS(NOT WAS)、ミニマルでアシッドなDAFのインストなどは個人的には初耳。なかなかお得。VOL.1の方にはOMDやディーヴォ他が収録されているようです。 

<Correspondent Ara.> The compilation with nice selection beyond the lables such as Island, Virgin, Arista, Chrysalis, ZE, Celluliod. They are occupied with the tracks released in '80 to '82. While there are some known tracks, simple Electro Pop Ami Marie, Funky Was (Not Was), minimul and acid DAF intrustrumetal are first time to hear. A good bargain. Vol. 1 includes OMD, Devo, etc.

Demo Top 10: Ventilator 202

[1983]

A1. REX ILUSIVII: Zla kob
A2. STA SE VID

B3. 39 LEGIJA: Smisao
B4. ZAK: Kosmicka balada
B5. LAKI PINGVINI: Mozda, mozda
B6. VIA TALAS: Ti

<Chad A.特派員>旧ユーゴスラビアから。2・3のエレクトロな曲がこのレコードのハイライトです。1983年にリリースされましたが、それよりも古い音がします。


<Correspondent Chad A.> From former Yugoslavia. A few electronic tunes highlight this record. It was released in 1983, but the groups sound older than this date.

Small Hits & Near Misses... The Inevitable Compilation

[1984] Inevitable

[Side One]
01. Wah!: Seven Minutes To Midnight
02. Dead Or Alive: I'm Falling
03. Venus Adore: Burning Arrows
04. The Builders: Daytime Assassins
05. Freeze Frame: Culture Won't Wait
[Side Two]
01. Box Of Toys: Precious Is The Pearl
02. Margox: Jimmy's Grin
03. Dalek I Love You: Freedom Fighters
04. Dead Or Alive: Flowers
/

<針井氏>"DALEK I LOVE YOU"は本来なら"DALEK (I LOVE YOU)"と書くべきでしょうが、ここではLPジャケットの表記に従いました。収録曲の中で、"DEAD OR ALIVE"はユーロビートを期待してるとネオ・サイケな感じで思いっきり肩透かしを食います。この控えめなタイトルとジャケットに書かれているJeremy Lewis & Jill Thompsonのコメントが'The Zoo Uncaged 1978-1982' (Zoo Compilation)でのBill Drummondよろしく泣かせます。
WE HOPE THAT YOU ENJOY THE ALBUM, WE CERTAINLY HAD A LOT OF FUN PUTTING IT TOGETHER.
このアルバムのリリースを待たずにINEVITABLEは消滅しました・・・。


<Mr. Harii> I should write "DALEK (I LOVE YOU)" for "DALEK I LOVE YOU", but I followed the way written in the LP. If you are expecting Euro Beat from "DEAD OR ALIVE", you will be disappointed as it sounds Neo Psychedelic. This humbling title and the comments in the cover by Jeremy Lewis & Jill Thompson move me resembling Bill Drummond in "The Zoo Uncaged 1978 - 1982 (Zoo Compilation).
WE HOPE THAT YOU ENJOY THE ALBUM, WE CERTAINLY HAD A LOT OF FUN PUTTING IT TOGETHER.
INEVITABLE disappeared before this album was released....

A Splash Of Colour

B2. Data: Blow
B3. Youth & Ben Watkins: The Empty 1/4
B4. Portion Control: Raise The Pulse
B5. Power To Dream: Bodies Gone

Illuminated Recordsというインディー・レーベルによるレーベル・コンピ。ジャケはインダストリアルっぽいですが、ゴシック、インダストリアル、エレポップ、ファンキーなリズムのニューウェイヴとかなり多彩なバンドが収録されています。Dataの『Blow』は、Art Of Noiseを思わせるもだえ声いりの上質エレポップ。


This is a label compilation on Illuminated Records, an indie label. While the cover art is a bit Industrial, it contains variety of bands from Gothic, Industrial, Electro Pop and New Wave with funky rhythme. "Blow" by Data is a quality Electro pop with erotic voice reminding the Art Of Noise.

Red Wave: 4 underground bands from the USSR

[1986] 2LPs

<Chad A.特派員>ロシアから。このコンピは86年にアメリカでリリースされましたが、録音は80年代前半のものです。バンドはAquarium Kino、Alisa、Strange Gamesです。其々が6曲、片面分収録。Strange Gamesはイギリス−ユーゴスラビアのPoints Eastレーベルから『Leningrad』をリリース。彼等はリオ風のアヴァン・ロック、ゾロ、スカを演奏した。


<Correspondent Chad A.> From Russia. This comp came out in the US in '86, but the songs were recorded earlier on in the 80's. The bands are Aquarium, Kino, Alisa, and Strange Games. They get 6 songs each, or one side of each 12". Strange Games put out an album, "Leningrad" on the British/Yugoslav Points East label. They play RIO-styled Avant-Rock, Zolo, and Ska.

結構前にフランクフルトのヴァージンメガで買った12、シングルばかりを集めたドイツのエレクトロラから出ているオムニバスです。結構選曲がまとまっていていいです。


This is the omnibus from German Electrola collecting 12" singles which I bought in Frunkfurt's Virgin Mega some time ago. The selection is quite good.

<サトル特派員>Polygram (TV 525 435-2)からリリース。サントラではありません、念のため。このHPに来るぐらいの方なら、「今更」のメジャーばかり。しかし、選曲がちょっとだけ渋め。80年代物エレポップの入門用にいかがでしょうか?


<Correspondent Satoru> This was released on Polygram (TV 525 435-2). It is different from the soundtrack one just in case. Most of them are major which may be too obvious for the people who visit this HP. But, the selection is kind of cool. It would be good young person's guide to 80's Electro Pop.

This is German-made Electro Pop (though some are a little questionable) Omnibus consisting of minor or ultra-minor artists. It is hard to grasp the 90's including unreleased tracks, but it is a good collection. I bought it at Tower Record in London.

15. Deee-Lite: Groove Is In The Heart
16. The B-52's: Cosmic Thing
17. Yello: Vicious Games

ドイツ語でライナーが書かれているので、はっきりと分かりませんが、STAR TREKをテーマにしたオムニバスのようです。といっても、STAR TREKのテーマ曲が入っているわけでもない。宇宙に関連する曲が多いみたいですが。HI-NRG、エレポップ、ハードコア・テクノ、ハウス、ブレークビーツ等幅広いジャンルからの選曲です。TREKKIEとしても知られるS.P.O.C.K.が収録されているのは当然ですね。


While I cannot understand well as it's written in Germany, it seems the omnibus album with the theme of STAR TREK. But, they are not necessarily the theme songs of STAR TREK. Many of the tracks seem to be related to space. It was compiled from a wide range of genre such as HI-NRG, Electro Pop, Hard Core Techno, House, Breakbeats, etc. It's quite natural that S.P.O.C.K. known as Trekkie is included here.

A Song For Euro Trash(ラヴ・ラヴ・ヨーロップ)

[1998]

01. Brigitte Bardot: Saint Tropez
02. Kenickie: Save Your Kisses For Me(思い出のラストキッス)
03. Dubstar feat. Sacha Distel: Poupee De Cire, Poupee De Son(夢見るシャンソン人形)
04. Edwyn Collins: Ding A Dong(愛の鐘の音)
05. St. Etienne: La La La(恋はラララ)
06. Dean Martin: Volare
07. Terry Hall & Sinead O'Connor: All Kinds Of Everything
08. Shane MacGowan & The Popes: What's Another Year
09. Eva Henger: Ooh Yeah
10. Fox Force 5: A Ba Ni Be
11. Annie Christian: Congratulations
12. Bananarama: Waterloo(恋のウォータールー)
13. 808 State: Variations On Te Deum (Eurovision Theme)
14. Antoine De Caunes & Kate Robbins: A Song For Eurotrash

このオムニバスはユーロヴィジョンと言う由緒あるコンテスト優勝曲(俗に深夜番組名からユーロ・トラッシュと呼ばれる)を集めた企画の勝利と言える超優秀カヴァーものです。ピチカートの小西康陽氏が「ユーロ・トラッシュ」とは何ぞやと解説している。それは、「ロック・ジェネレーションとかクラブ・ピープルとか、カウンター・カルチャー側にいる(と思っている)ヨーロッパの人間には恥ずかしくて死にたくなるような、オジさんオバさん、それにダサイ連中がパブか午後のTVか村の祭で聴いている音楽。」らしい。ダサイと思われているものもオチャめなのりでやるとカッコよくなるというモンド的展開であります。ダブスターの『夢見るシャンソン人形』とバナナラマ(シボーンが帰ってきた!)の『恋のウォータールー』は特に光っています。


This omnibus album is ultra-excellent covering the winning songs from historic contest called Eurovision (so called Euro trash from the name of midnight TV program) that is a triumph of planning. Pizzicato's Yasuharu Konishi explains what "Euro Trash" is. He said "It's the type of music which European (they think) at the counter culture side like rock generation and club people are so ashamed of to death, and old men and women and uncool people listen to at pubs, on afternoon's TV programs or village festivals. It is a mondo-type development that uncool things become cool when they are done in a kitsch fashion. Dubstar's "Poupee De Cire, Poupee De Son" and Bananarama's (Siobhan is back!) "Waterloo" are especially sparkling.

脅威の80年代8枚組ボックスセットをFun Recordsで3,900円程でゲット。これは、お得です。唯一残念なのが、曲の解説が何も無い事。*印は、エレポップ〜ニューウェイヴ度の高いもの(単にエレクトロ・アレンジのポップ・ソングや正しいユーロビートも含む)。“新発見”又は“再発見”と言える曲を、ピックアップしました(トラック・リスト中のリンクをクリック)。


I got this amazing 8 CD box set at $35 at Fun Records. It's a very good buy. The only pitty thing is no description on the tracks. * is marked for the ones with high level of Electro Pop - New Wave (including just Electro-arranged Pop tunes and proper Eurobeat). I picked up the tracks I newly discovered or re-discovered (click the links in the track list).

ヒースロー空港でポンドが残っていたので買ったコンピですが、メジャーなものにマイナーも混じって結構面白いコンピです。ミュート、ベガーズ・バンケット、スティッフなどのインディー系レーベルのアーティストを集めたからそうなったのでしょう。


This is the compilation which I bought because I had left-over pounds at Heathrow Airport. It is a pretty interesting compilation having minor ones with some major ones. I guess it became so because they complied indie lables such as Mute, Beggars Banquet, Stiff Records.

<サトル特派員>以上、全てMAXI-VERSION、12" VERSION、REMIXES だそうですが、Ultravoxの『Vienna』は、オリジナルとの違いが分かりません。でも、Arcadia『Election Day』、Power Station『Some Like It Hot』のRemixって初CD化では?4枚組ボックスセットで2,800円台くらいで手に入ります(タワーレコード等)。


<Correspondent Satoru> All the above tracks are supposed to be Maxi-version, 12" version or remixes, but I cannot tell the differences vs. the original for Ultravox"Vienna". The remixes for Arcadia "Election Day" and Power Station "Some Like It Hot" may be the first ones on CD. You can get this 4 CD box set at around \2,800 (Tower Records, etc.).

ドイツの一発屋を集めたオムニバス。Ulli WengerというラジオDJが選曲したものの様です。Disco系も多いです。*印は、エレポップ〜ニューウェイヴ度の高いもの(単にエレクトロ・アレンジのポップ・ソングや正しいユーロビートも含む)。“新発見”又は“再発見”と言える曲を、ピックアップしました(トラック・リスト中のリンクをクリック)。

Stiff, Stiffer, Stiffest - A Stiff Records Collection

[2001] CD; Metro/Stiff

Stiff Recordsは、1970年中期に始まった英国での初期ニューウェイヴ・レーベル。ニューウェイヴといっても、The Plastmaticsなどのわりとポップなパンク、いわゆるNick Loweのようなパブ・ロック、Tracey UllmanやKirsty MacCollといった60年代ガールポップ・リヴァイヴァル、The Rumourといったモダンポップ系とヴァラエティがありますが、とても英国っぽい。Metro(Union Square Music)がStiffからライセンスして出したなかなかレアな曲も収録したいいコンピです。

Stiff Records is a British early New Wave label starting from mid-70's. While I could call New Wave, it includes a wide variety of pop Punk such as The Plasmatics, Pub Rock such as Nick Lowe, 60's Girl Pop Revival such as Tracey Ullman, Kirsty MacColl, Modern Pop such as The Rumour. It's very British. This is a nice compilation including rare tracks on Metro (Union Square Music) licencing from Stiff.
