Megapost: Sub Pop 100, 200 & 300

I'm now on my second day of rampantly uploading my music collection onto my new computer which has forced me to rediscover many old albums that have been collecting dust. Under a pile of horrendously abused Alice Donut and Melvins CDs I just found the black box with the "Sub Pop 200" compilation CD in it which has started bringing back memories of my first encounters with bands I now love such as Blood Circus, Beat Happening and Girl Trouble. This then triggered me to dig up the "Sub Pop 300" CD which was put out by MOJO as a way of promoting Sub Pop's 20th anniversary a couple of years ago, and of course the legendary "Sub Pop 100" CD. I feel that all these compilation albums are fairly perfect in representing the label's finest bands from each era (although SP 300 is in there mostly just for shits and giggles and all you completists out there).

The potential for discovering something great in these albums is off the charts and so hopefully you'll enjoy these as much as I do:
