"As good if not better than the stuff released on Sarah.
Truly beautiful songs!" -Wally Salem, The Beautiful Music

"In a way, the compilation marks the end of a story. . . It Was The Rain is a true celebration of one of the founding bands of the genre we all love so dearly now." (Aberdeen It Was The Rain 8/10) - Third Outing
www.thirdouting.com/features/aberdeen-it-was-the-rain

"...absolutely vile." - Beth Arzy, Popkiss: The Story of Sarah Records

"To me these recordings sound as good as the records released which makes me wonder how many other lost recordings that Girgus is sitting on?" Tim Hinley, Dagger Zine
