about

The perfect ‘best of’ collection from the undisputed kings of Cabbagetown! A twenty two track, double album featuring recordings from their first four full lengths performed live at the Star Bar during an extended residency in 1998 and 1999. Download includes "A Major Motion Picture Redux" which features an additional four songs that ended up on the cutting room floor.

"Chris Lopez wrote some of the most eloquent, sardonic, romantic, and, well, basically the best rock and roll songs of the 1990s. His band wrapped them in a florid southern reimagining of 1950s garage rock that always sounded sloppily, scarily out of control and yet dead serious. The wild success the Rock*A*Teens deserved was instead deferred onto a generation of indie bands who weakly shuffled down the path the R*A*T’s blazed. This double LP offers a rare glimpse of them onstage in their hometown of Atlanta during an extended residency at the Star Bar. It’s wild, sloppy, hilarious, and dangerous, like the R*A*T’s themselves. I would tell you it has all of Lopez’s best songs on it but you’d need four more records for that."
—Will Sheff, Okkervil River
