Bad Magick: The Best of Shooter Jennings and the 357's

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Bad Magick is comprised of two unreleased cover songs and 13 "hits," only one of which -- the pleasantly jangling "4th of July" -- experienced any degree of chart success. As a result, this compilation may be a bit premature, as it takes its material from three scant studio albums and one live release.
