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."

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.

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.

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.

It takes more than one listen to appreciate this record and that's just as well, for it grows on you slowly but surely. It is one of these very few records you finally end up listening to over and over again without getting tired of it. The music is simple yet extremely efficient. The Blues Explosion know just exactly how to take a simple groove to its resolution. They may not be great musicians but it simply does not matter. They have uncomparable chemistry and complicity that particularily shines on the instrumental tracks, such as "R.L. got soul". Granted, this album is less accessible than its predecessor "Orange" but the funk is still all there, it's simply less obvious and takes time to be appreciated. A better album in my opinion that I would have given five stars to if not for that dreadful last song that is simply painful to listen to.
