Notes

Released by a small American independent label, this CD collects mostly contributions from split-releases (with the likes of Daddy Longleg, Unabomber, J. Church and Contravene) plus some material from early EPs. The goal of the compilation is to introduce Petrograd's body of work to the United States, and I think the job couldn't have done any better. While there are no tracks from the regular albums Isabelle, abc and 911, most songs have been only released on vinyl, the instrumental opener Play Now and a chill-out remix of the band's hit song July 20th are even unreleased (although these tracks alone wouldn't justify the purchase, being not really that representative). While completists probably own all the different split-releases, they'd get another really rare song, Pathetic Campfire Romance, previously only released on a CD-R compilation.
