Damn great collection of early 45s, plus some unreleased and live stuff. All tracks are recorded between 1992 and 1994. If you don't mind lo-fi recordings, I'm sure you'll dig the unbelievable "Changes Had To Come" or gems like "John Henry/ Jelly Belly/ Haunted Hill/ Cockroach Blues/ Hokey Pokey (She Said I Got) A Problem" and more. 23 tracks, which is a overkill to listen to all the way, but if you just pick out some at a time, this is GREAT!!
