Editorial Reviews

The first ever anthology. Sixteen re-mastered tracks. These long out of print songs offer the perfect overview of the legendary Seattle punk band whose rise was interrupted by the tragic murder of front woman Mia Zapata. An inspiration to all riot grrrls who followed, The Gits' music lives on in this CD. Street date coincides with the 15th memorial anniversary of Zapata's death and with "The Gits" release on DVD.

First off...I love The Gits. If Mia hadn't been killed...they would've likely been one of the biggest bands in the world. Yes...they were that good.

Next...the Amazon track listing on July 10th 2008 doesn't quite match the CD that I received. The tracks on my CD are:

1. A Change Is Gonna Come
2. Guilt Within Your Head
3. Seaweed
4. Cut My Skin It Makes Me Human
5. It All Dies Anyway
6. Spear and Magic Helmet
7. Absynthe (Live)
8. Another Shot of Whiskey (Live)
9. Insercurities (Live)
10. Here's to Your F**k (Live)
11. Whirlwind
12. Daily Bread
13. Eleven
14. Tempt Me
15. Social Love

Now that is a great set of songs...but I don't think that this CD qualifies as a "Best of". Sadly missing are 'Second Skin'...'Sign of the Crab' and 'While You're Twisting, I'm Still Breathing'...'Beauty of the Rose' and 'Slaughter of Bruce'...among others.

I gave this CD a 4 star rating...would've been a 5 star rating if it was an actual "Best of". Now this is a good sampler for people unfamiliar with The Gits. I strongly recommend the other Gits' CDs...especially "Frenching The Bully"...you won't be disappointed.

And when does one CD equal a box set?

Viva Zapata and Viva The Gits

The Gits are an incredible band, this album has some live versions of some songs previously unreleased on CD. Highly recommended!
