Boomkat Product Review:
100+ of the best songs spanning the career of the legendary Jad Fair and his band Half Japanese. Liner notes by Everett True. "Jad Fair is the godfather of minimalist monster art rock - a gentleman and a beast." Edwin Pouncey The Wire. "I love him for his boundless enthusiasm and shy genius" says Everett True, ".. maybe it's wrong to call Jad naïve because he knows what he's doing, but he has a child-like wonderment that to me is at the core of most great music I can name. The Shaggs, Leadbelly, Jonathan Richman. He makes my feet want to move, and there's no higher compliment, I've seen Jad play concerts with a rolled-up newspaper and upturned wastebasket for rhythm, with just his voice for colour. I've also seen Jad play stadiums in precisely the same fashion - with a band behind him, sure, but with the spirit intact - in front of crowds of over 15,000, in support to Nirvana on their fi¬nal tour."
