In the wake of Guitar Town's success, Epic rushed out this collection of early Steve Earle tracks recorded from 1982 to 1985, including songs from 1982's Pink & Black EP. While much of this is by-the-book rockabilly fare, it provides a good look at his formative years. The CD reissue on Koch adds four tracks from Epic singles, including covers of tunes by John Hiatt and Dennis Linde.
