The Grunge Years

Sub Pop SP112b CD / SP112a CS, released 1991 (U.S.)
Sub Pop/Sony SRCS 5864 CD, released 1992 (Japan)
Contains the Fluid track "Tomorrow", the Love Battery track "Between the Eyes", the Afghan Whigs track "Retarded", and the Screaming Trees track "Change Has Come"

This Sub Pop compilation was the jumping off point for me for some of my all-time favorite bands. I started listening to both Love Battery and The Afghan Whigs because of the tracks on here. It's also got my favorite L7 and Babes in Toyland songs, not to mention the only CD version of "Tomorrow" by The Fluid, the b-side of the Tin Top Toy 7". The CD came out in both the U.S. and Japan. All versions are fairly common.
