Making Singles, Drinking Doubles

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Kathleen C. Fennessy
A more conventional label would simply round up their greatest hits in recognition of their 100th release, but not the gang at Bloodshot, the Chicago-based indie behind the likes of Kelly Hogan and Neko Case.

Although there are a few omissions, like Old 97's and Robbie Fulks, both are already represented by their own Bloodshot compilations of obscurities and rare tracks.
