This set of songs from Charleston, South Carolina bands fares a bit better than the previous volume.

Standout artists: The Parrots, Terry Paine And The Pleasures, M-80

Track by track:

1. The Parrots - "I Don't Want To Talk To You Tonight": New wave/power pop in the vein of bands like The Producers, The Money, and Quincy. I personally think they should have added keyboards.
2. Trance - "Runaround": Hard rock with a great guitar solo.
3. Phaze - "Saturday Night Girls": Funky new wave rock.
4. Frankie Firejack And The Jackels - "State Of The Art": Feel-good rock 'n' roll with humorous lyrics. They even pay homage to The Go-Go's towards the end of the song.
5. David Orvin - "Those Eyes": Pop rock.
6. Terry Paine And The Pleasures - "I Need To Know": New wave that goes slightly into AOR territory. Think The Producers meets Boston, with the clean chorused guitars of the former and the high-pitched vocals and harmonizing lead guitars of the latter.
7. Trouble Band - "Under Control": Melodic rock semi-ballad with flute added to the mix, from their LP.
8. The Detectives - "The Neutral Zone": Power pop with a ska vibe.
9. M-80 - "Trouble Tonight": Bouncy hard rock with equally bouncy vocals.
10. Robert Hutto Band - "Same Old, Same Old": Organ-infused power pop.
