Supposedly released 6 weeks ago but I can't find it in stores around Portland Oregon in any format. None of them have even heard of it. Terrible distribution for an established label like Wax Trax.

LOL. Yes, better to idolize the man Lydon described as a 'coat hanger' who couldn't even play well enough to be on the album.

Phenomenal comp with a vast collection of rare singles on the first CD. The second disk comprises the albums ...What That Is! and Because Is In Your Mind. It's on Bear Family so naturally the quality is excellent.

Weird mastering issues on this. Watch the VU meter on Track 8 "SolarDip" from 2:50 to 3:20 where there are strange increases in volume to the point of clipping.

Didn't get my hands on this oddity until a few years ago. At first I wasn't thrilled with the remix (Minutemen on reverb?!?) but it makes for an interesting side trip after you've heard the album several hundred times. Kinda like taking a new route to... See full review
