GUEST POST: Rhino's INSTANT PARTY Series [1999-2001]

Hey guys, this is Mark from My Favorite Decade and The CD Project (a.k.a. The Soft Rock Kid, Dr. Smooth, The Panther of Love, Hey You With The Face, etc). I recently came across a Rhino CD compilation series that was new to me: Instant Party Disc. I was wondering how many CDs were in the series and couldn't find any info so I threw this list together (it's based on an internet search, so take it with a grain of salt). And since it's the kind of information one usually finds here at The Hideaway, I figure I'd send it on over. Please note any corrections or amendments and we'll make changes as necessary.
