Boomkat Product Review:
Back In Stock! Reissue of the debut Cat Power album from 1994. Guests include Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley and Chan covers Tom Wait's 'Yesterday Is Here' from the 1987 album 'Frank's Wild Years'. Also on here is the now notorious 'Mr. Gallo', dedicated to indie hero, old school B-Boy and former Cat Power Squeeze, Vincent 'Prince Vince' Gallo. There are glimpses at the kind of writing that would carve out her future records, but Chan Marshall's songs here are so much rawer and more unhinged than we've come to expect from her in recent times, which of course, is by no means a bad thing.
