This is by far NOT what any devoted Rounders fan would have wanted it to be. It's totally understandable, to me, that the psych-rock-freakout weirdness of THE MORAY EELS EAT... and INDIAN WAR WHOOP aren't represented here, since a) they're just not of a piece with the rest of the music here; b) both those albums have little for song separation, everything runs together, and are meant to be appreciated as a "piece;" and C) they weren't released on Rounder in the first place. I can't say much about the disinclusion of material from GOOD TASTE IS TIMELESS, since the album is rare enough that I've never even heard it. What irks me, though, is just *how little* of ALLEGED IN THEIR OWN TIME and that Stampfel/Weber solo thing, GOING NOWHERE FAST, are included. There's a few cuts, and admittedly they're some of the finest ("Nova," "Synergy," "Coldest Woman," etc,); but there's also a lot of Clamtones, Michael Hurley, dimly-related Rounders spinoffs that just lack any of the magic and exuberance of real Rounders material. (The only exception is "Impossible Groove," a priceless track by Peter Stampfel and the Bottlecaps, off their rare first release.) Further, ALLEGED IN THEIR OWN TIME and GOING NOWHERE FAST, in addition to being under-represented here, are both ON ROUNDER-- and unreleased on CD! Rounder keeps blabbing about how their name was inspired by this band, while keeping two of their finer albums out of circulation (not to mention the rumoured second CD from the TOO MUCH FUN sessions). These less-interesting Hurley tracks and whatnot ARE currently available in the Rounder catalogue, though, so I guess it's more important to the label that they promote them... This could have been a great album, but it ends up focusing far too much on a) material that's in print or b) material that just doesn't have enough of Stampfel or Weber involved in it. I'd recommend it for obsessives only, or for people who have never heard the hilarious, brilliant "Nova" (which rhymes "time is on my side" with "slime is on my tide," if you can imagine it). Meanwhile, folks at Rounder, for the sake of the credibility of your name, re-release ALLEGED IN THEIR OWN TIME, please!
