Rhino Records continues their string of what they call "Pop Culture Boxes" with Whatever: The 90's Pop and Culture Box
. It's due to be released soon (can't find the exact date from the Rhino web site
), but why wait? Impressively, out of a track listing that spans seven CD's, and over eight hours of music, only six tracks are not available on Rhapsody in some format (there are a couple of buy-only tracks).
Sit back, relax and remember the 90's. Listen to Whatever: The 90's Pop and Culture Playlist

From the Rhino description:
Revisiting an era of droopy-drawers rappers, bedroom beatmakers, and a musical revolution that was definitely televised, Rhino bridges the musical divides with the ultimate decade capsule.
This seven-disc, 130-track collection fuses everything from the innocence of pop-rap pioneer M.C. Hammer's "U Can't Touch This," to image-shattering rocker Sinead O'Connor's stunning cover of Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U," to the arrival of the bruising locomotive hooks of Helmet ("Unsung") and Pantera ("Walk"), all the way to the sample-hugged atmospherics of Moby's "Natural Blues," which wraps up the eight-hour-plus odyssey. Other artists include Oasis, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jewel, Aaliyah, Hanson, Primus, Busta Rhymes, Wilco, and many more.
