This Hell-damned collection of weathered Nashville legends and battered backwoods-poets features tales of Craven Lusts, post-Apocalyptic Visions and Atomic Redemptions, Gospel Exultations and bottomless Sinful Degradations. Often originally waxed on marginal labels and distributed in disheartening amounts, these Troubled Troubadours sing of scalding Hellfire Flames, tortured Ghostly Apparitions and tearful Howling Bedlam.

I'd love a copy of this but I won't feed the parasites that are flipping this. Utter snakes.

For those in the UK who, like me, were disappointed that this was only available in the States, I've seen some copies on ebay at prices which aren't too unreasonable, and which are shipped from the UK.

I was lucky enough to grab one at RSD today. It's a quiet pressing and the mastering is great (I got the Beelzebub yellow vinyl).

Tremendous pressing. Dead quiet wax and the audio quality is great on each track.
