ReviewEdit

In 1997, Restless put out a collection of the first two albums, along with the EPs and a bunch of bonus tracks. If you don't mind starting with a 2 CD set, this is a great place to start, as it's got both Lincoln and Miscellaneous T, which are really great albums (though the latter's split across two discs), and the bonus tracks, mostly culled from the 1985 Demo Tape and Dial-A-Song (Free when you call from work, 718-387-6962) range from the lost gem ("Now That I Have Everything" to the amusing toss-off ("Counterfeit Fake", the first song recorded with John Flansburgh's new-at-the-time drum machine). Definitely pick this up, even if you're new to the band. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
