Rhapsody Originals EP (EP)
Released: Jan 2009
Not lucky enough to be in the room when this was recorded? No problem. Mission of Burma is one of those quietly great bands of the early '80s -- few people didn't rip them off in some way in the years that followed their breakup and exactly zero people were ever able to write anything as cool as "Academy Fight Song." "This Is Not a Photograph" is the other classic here, but even the new songs manage to reach the bar this seminal band set for themselves years and years and years ago.
