NOTES:
Issued in regular jewel-case with art-work behind clear tray (some copies issued in long box).

Changed was originally titled You Gonna Change on A Reverse Willie Horton. Feeling of Love is an alternate take to the one featured on Crypt Style.

These tracks come from sessions with Kramer (July 1991) and Steve Albini (November/December 1991). The Shirt Jac single was also recorded during the Steve Albini sessions.

The first album was available as A Reverse Willie Horton, Crypt Style (CD / LP), Crypt Style [25 Tracks / Japan], The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion (CD / CASSETTE / LP) and on 10 August 2010 Shout! Factory released a 38-track compilation titled Year One which takes tracks from all of the early releases.
