    Given that Jim seems profoundly committed to keeping his biggest records off streaming platforms, I sure am happy he (or Drag City) decided to have (most of) his catalog pressed at RTI. I own Eureka, Insignificance, and Bad Timing, and they all are absolutely immaculate: dynamic, punchy and dead-silent.

    Don't pay the greedy flippers but definitely sign up for drag city's email list or something because these are gems.

      Excellent album, my favorite from Jim. My pressing has some noisy section, not sure if that’s just my copy.
