AllMusic Review by

With a title that plays on Graham Parker's corporate-venomous song and EP Mercury Poisoning, the disc skims a dozen layers of feminist-folk-punk cream from three eclectic albums (folk-rock, swing-jazz, and Southern roots music) recorded for the label between 1988 and 1991, plus tracks previously only available on soundtracks, compilations, and 1994 indie release Kind Hearted Woman.
