This under appreciated disc is a tribute to the Knitters. They were formed in the mid-eighties by LA bands X and the Blasters. This cowpunk side project created a record in 85 titled "Poor Little Critter In The Road". In 1999 Bloodshot records talented roster of bands recreated the album....some of it is brilliant. Highlights are the starkly beautiful "Trail Of Time" by the Handsome Family, John Doe and the Old 97s equally stunning "Crying But My Tears Are Far Away". Another great cut is Robbie Fulks wild "Call of the Wrecking Ball". For me the duds were "Rock Island Line" and Whiskeytown's cover of "Silver Wings", which is a puzzle because I generally like the group and really like the song. This is the worst cover of it I've heard. The short offering ends with another worthwhile song; the Knitters "Why We Dont Try Anymore"....a soulful lil swinger that sashays off into the sunset.
