AllMusic Review by

An all-covers collection of early 45s and unreleased material makes the A-side of this record the definitive sound-history of pre-1984 Chesterfield Kings. The style of these songs, particularly the band's first 1979 single "I Ain't No Miracle Worker," is even more stripped down than their debut album, and though the music had already progressed to an astute level of playing, singer Greg Provost sounds like he's still trying to develop. The B-side is a live recording from a 1983 concert and, despite its relatively poor sound quality, is a raucous and fleeting example of things to come.
