Although basically just an odd collection of semi-obscure (but uniformly great) '60s and '70s singles, Guilty Pleasures is a fascinating listen in that the songs have no relation to one another other than that the compiler, noted rock journalist Dawn Eden, really, really likes them. As Eden reveals in the excellent liner notes, the idea behind the disc was to present a CD version of a typical mix tape trader's all-time favorite comp. In this respect, the disc is a total success, as it captures a wonderful grab bag of genuine one-hit wonders ("Magic" by Pilot) and crazy never-should-have-beens ("L. David Sloane" by Knot's Landing's Michelle Lee), with no real regard for genre or anything else except inherent coolness. In other words, this is a disc for real music lovers, but thankfully avoids the overly narrow focus of many obscurities compilations (how many people outside of obsessive fans can really can sit through an entire 30-track disc of non-hit Bear Family rockabilly and the like?). The notes promise additional volumes, but apparently Guilty Pleasures was an isolated event, though Eden was involved in compiling several other excellent discs on the Risky Business label.
