Between 1988 and 1994, the Soup Dragons were signed to the Big Life label, spawning one worldwide smash single, their cover of the Rolling Stones' "I'm Free," and three albums (1990's Lovegod, 1992's Hotwired, and 1994's Hydrophonic) that were amalgamations of arena-sized riffs, danceable beats, and uncomplicated alternative pop. They had a couple other songs (most notably "Divine Thing") scare the charts, but mostly they toiled away on the fringes of the big time. This generous 20-song collection of tracks from that era rounds up songs from each album, plus a handful of rarities.
