5.0 out of 5 stars Commercial Backslide July 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Orange, from 1994, had been The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's biggest seller. What they followed it up with two years later, though, almost guaranteed a commercial backslide. It still had the distorted funk of the previous album, but they'd turned up the chaos.

The extra tracks on this reissue make a kind of alternate Now I Got Worry. The more sedate grooves represent the direction that market forces would've expected after Orange. They're made up of B-sides and other songs from the Worry sessions, together with four hilarious radio adverts for the album ("let the Blues Explosion give you two kinds of love").

Money Mark had turned up here and there on Now I Got Worry as a kind of Nicky Hopkins to the Blues Explosion's Rolling Stones, especially on "Can't Stop". He's on half of the extra songs, though, and his contribution to the alternate vision of Now I Got Worry is in line with his previous work. He'd already worked with The Dust Brothers as well as the Beastie Boys, and he'd released his own album, the easy listening lo-fi funk Money's Keyboard Repair.

The liner notes describe how the Blues Explosion became close to the keyboardist when they supported a Beastie Boys arena tour, and another collaborator in fact is Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz, who scratches cool samples over "Cool Vee". The previously unreleased "Roosevelt Hotel Blues", meanwhile, features both Money Mark and Beck on keyboards. It all helps make a seriously great bonus album. Now I Got Worry proper is the best, though. It's like the radio advert says, "shake it baby, shake it mama, shake it, shake it."

"But baby don't break it."

5.0 out of 5 stars Speaker Splitting Rock March 26, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album opens with John Spencer screaming like Elvis would if hot irons were being applied to his feet, and that's bascially the tone for the album. Rock's tradition is raw and savage, and these guys uphold that tradition with a record that bristles with attitude, crunch, and incredible guitar work. Put DOWN your hip-hop and go buy this record.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best rock albums of 90's March 30, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is the best Jon Spencer album and I'm including all his works with Heavy Trash, Pussy Galore, JSBX, Boss Hog, etc. One of my favorite albums of all-time and definitely the best rock album of 90's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blues With a Mohawk and Safety Pins November 15, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
You gotta give 'em credit. To meld high-speed three-chord punk and blues is a master stroke, and this album makes for an enjoyable mix. Spencer sounds like Elvis through a warped fuzzbox ... and it make such testosterone poisoned lines as "Kiss my a** - your girlfriend still loves me!" a hoot. Most important, Spencer has resurrected the Blues Groove - Robert Johnson, after all, was a dance musician. "Love All of Me" and "Chicken Dog" have indelible dance grooves. This album takes a while to get hooked on, then doesn't let go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now I Got Worry February 28, 2014
Format:Vinyl
This is without question most definitely the best JSBX album ever. A tasty mix of punk, blues, funk and garage psych. It is also lots of fun!

Not my favorite JSBX record but never the less still a pretty good listen. Some of the songs kick major ass and yet others are sort of half assed and lack direction. Read more

I'm not a music critic, so I'll just say that this is my favorite JSBX album. It's rock. And it's great pretty much all the way through. Have fun.

This JSBX record is a lot less noisy than the ones that came before but that doesn't mean they have lost power, no way! Read more

Excellent stuff. Probably JSBX's best. I always play this record in my car. I recommend everybody to play the first 30 seconds of "Skunk" loudly, whenever you get stuck... Read more
