    A great collection of obscurities for any Tortoise fan. The majority of the material on discs 1& 2 is either previously-unreleased or only available on compilations, while disc 3 contains the entirety of Rhythms, Resolutions & Clusters (including the "lost" Mike Watt remix which was added to the track listing of the recent reissues). The DVD is also a great document of the band in different phases of their career over the span of eight years, and is worth the price of admission alone IMO.
