In 1991 MTV and Rhino Records teamed up for 120’s Minutes excellent compilation NEVER MIND THE MAINSTREAM. The 2 CD set gathered up several of the long running show’s mainstays as well as some of the biggest tracks in late 80’s early 90’s indie and alternative complete with photos and band bio’s from the shows long time host Dave Kendall.

I bought both CD’s at my local record store when they came out and they are still in my collection. Sure the comps do not include any deep cuts or rare tracks but both CD’s not only rattle through hit after hit with some of the powerhouse bands in classic college rock but the set greatly show just how diverse MTV’s world of 120 Minutes could be.
