AllMusic Review by

This release (only available in the U.K.) takes three great songs from Crenshaw's finest album Field Day and presents them in remixed versions, here trading Steve Lillywhite's punky, souped-up sound for the warmer, yet still rocking production approach of John Luongo. While the wonderfully desperate, almost manic urgency of the earlier versions is sacrificed by doing so, the remixes do impart an almost elegant vigor to these numbers that suits them well. There's also a good live version here of the Elvis Presley hit "Little Sister." This EP is well worth getting and is a must for Crenshaw aficionados.
