AllMusic Review by

In his liner notes, frontman Howe Gelb describes the songs that make up Giant Sandwich as "shy;" they come from obscure sources like the band's first two tough-to-find albums as well as flexi-discs and Howe's side project the Band of Blacky Ranchette. Most intriguing, however, is the otherwise unreleased material, like the early "Artists" and a dramtically different and stark rendition of "Black Venetian Blind." A record for more than just the faithful.
