NOTES:
The Muffs debut album features Jon Spencer playing Theremin on I Need You which was also issued as a 7″ single by Sub Pop.

A very short unlisted track plays shortly after the close of track 16.

The sleeve spells Jon Spencer with a ‘H’ in both occurrences of the name.

This album was reissued with bonus tracks in 2015.
