Thoughtfully compiled by bandleader Eric D. Johnson (also of Bonny Light Horseman), this 2-LP collection is split in two distinct halves. The first disc, set in reverse chronological order, cherry-picks from Fruit Bats' grand catalog of folk/pop earworms. Fan favorites from Johnson's most celebrated albums, like 2011's The Tripper, 2016's Absolute Loser and as current as 2019's Gold Past Life, are compiled into a perfectly arranged introduction to the timeless pop sounds of Fruit Bats. The second disc is a deeper dive into the FB world with demos, live recordings, previously unreleased tracks & new material from Johnson & Co (the "co" here being a slew of accomplished musicians that occasionally includes names like the late Richard Swift, Josh Kaufman (Bonny Light Horseman) and even legendary Dinosaur Jr. leader J. Mascis!).
