VIEW:
NOTES:
Cassette issue with cover/insert printed on one side only and white print on cassette, also issued on CD and vinyl (on Hut/UK only).

Spine and cassette casing give band-name only as “Explosion”.

Changed was originally titled You Gonna Change on A Reverse Willie Horton.

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.
