The Dave Edmunds is from the Dave Edmunds box set. An old friend and roomie, Dobie Holland, used to work at Jet Magazine and would get to take the promo copies of cd's and cd sets. The Dave Edmunds set was a present for my birthday-- 29th or 30th, maybe. Dobie kept the Black Market Clash for himself. And he had "The Best of War" in a specially produced Eight-Track. Way cool.
If you've never heard the Fugs, you must. Irreverent is not a strong enough adjective.
