One of the greatest free resources on the net for finding out about obscure music is Rate Your Music. I go there almost daily, and one contributor/reviewer who frequently comes up on albums and bands that I am interested is a user that goes by the tag of RDTEN1 (link). I have found leads from so many of his detailed reviews in making TDATS that I decided he fully deserved some praise here. I was not surprised to find out that he has been an avid record collector and dealer for years, and he plys his trade under the name Badcat Records (link). His name is Scott Blackerby and he lives in Reston, Virginia. What I have done here is asked Scott to pick fifteen tunes for a comp, and say a little about each one. Following that is an interview I conducted with him, mostly regarding what it is like to deal in obscure rock and how he finds the nuggets and information for his reviews.
