The box set includes remastered reissues of three previous albums Bad Debt, Poor Moon, and Haw, as well as the rarities compilation Virgo Fool, which will only be available physically as part of this collection. “Rock Holy” is taken from Virgo Fool and was originally released on Merge’s 25th anniversary compilation Or Thousands of Prizes.
