The Give Me Back LP helped to define Ebullition's identity.
On a musical level it captured the essence of the Ebullition sound with a line-up that included ten bands that would do major releases on Ebullition over the course of the next few years; of all of the compilations released on Ebullition only the Give Me Back LP can truly be called a compilation of Ebullition bands.
On an ideological level the Give Me Back LP also managed to achieve the political goals of the label. Every band wrote a song specifically about some issue concerning the gender theme, and the 32 page booklet also features articles and essays about gender issues. In addition the compilation was a benefit for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Planned Parenthood, and Shelter Services For Women.
