Tommy Keene – You Hear Me: A Retrospective (Second Motion Records)

If the Queen were to knight people based on overall contributions to pop music, Tommy Keene would be among the first to receive the honor. Though Keene has flirted with mainstream success in the past, the masses haven’t quite caught on to what a treasure this guy truly is. With a remarkable 41 songs gathered here, this collection should have fans of Big Star, Cheap Trick and The Raspberries fawning over Keene’s most excellent brand of power-pop.
