Synopsis

Amazon.com
Yup, another tribute album and, yup, it's from Seattle. This one is out to prove a point, however--that the rainy city is not a one-sound town, as anyone who's enjoyed the Spinanes, the Fastbacks, the Posies, the Walkabouts, the Young Fresh Fellows, the Picketts, or the Presidents of the U.S.A. already knows. All of the above, save the Posies, make an appearance here, along with the likes of standbys Girl Trouble, Tad, Mudhoney, Flop, Love Battery, and Gas Huffer; younger acts like Built to Spill and Citizen's Utilities; and "supergroups" Mad Season (Mike McReady, Layne Staley, John Baker Saunders, Barrett Martin) and the Minus 5 (Scott McCaughey/YFF, Jon Auer/Posies, Pete Buck/REM, Kurt Bloch/Fastbacks, YFF). It's not a great record, but it is an entertaining listen. --Randy Silver

CD Reviews

Grunge Museum
Christopher Bushman | Portland, OR USA | 09/04/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Just picked this up used at my local used record store for $7.00. It won't change your life but if you are a grunge-lovin' fool from way back it should be in your collection.

How can you go wrong with live Mudhoney (augmented with saxophone-skronk no less!)?

Amusingly,this out of print bad boy is selling used on Amazon from anywhere between 25 cents and $16.99."

"Lot of good sounds on this one. Presidents, Fastbacks, Mad Season, Mudhoney, just to name a few. When in Seattle, the Croc is a good place to see live music"
