Spawning in one way or another both the Waitresses and The Black Keys should count for something. If not, than this release should put Tin Huey in its place as a progenitor of the quirky Akron sound later expounded by both Devo and The Bizzaros alike. This release collects up the bands earliest recordings, spanning the years 1974-1979. For fans, as Robert Christgau describes in the liner notes, of fancy key changes, gut-swooping tempo shifts, elaborate arrangements, and meters you figure out on a calculator. Artwork by Derf.
Tin Huey's blend of blues, jazz and progressive rock is hilariously unique, offering up a warped vision of Middle America. --Trouser Press
