Shake Some Action series

Originally released in Spain and not totally authorized, this 8 volume collection highlights late 70s to early 80s power pop, mod & new wave rarities from UK, USA, Ireland and All Around The World.

Wiki

Power pop (also typeset as powerpop) is a form of pop rock[1] based on the early music of bands such as the Who, the Beatles, the Beach Boys, and the Byrds.[2][3] It originated in the mid 1960s as young music fans began to rebel against the emerging pretensions of rock music, and developed mainly among American musicians who came of age during the British Invasion

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_pop

Mod is a subculture that began in London and spread throughout Great Britain and elsewhere, eventually influencing fashions and trends in other countries,[1] and continues today on a smaller scale. Focused on music and fashion, the subculture has its roots in a small group of stylish London-based young men in the late 1950s who were termed modernists because they listened to modern jazz.[2] Elements of the mod subculture include fashion (often tailor-made suits); music (including soul, rhythm and blues, ska, jazz, and later splintering off into freakbeat); and motor scooters (usually Lambretta or Vespa). In the mid 1960s, the subculture listened to power pop rock groups with mod following, such as The Who and The Small Faces, after the peak Mod era. The original mod scene was associated with amphetamine-fuelled all-night dancing at clubs.

Pat Benatar got pigeonholed as a rocker later in the Eighties but few will remember her first hit was in the vein of a Blondie New Wave crooner.
