From roots to rock ‘n’ roll, the label boss of Off Label records - Johnny Hankes – knows what he likes and this compilation of outtakes reflects his taste in music.

From the completist’s point of view, this album allows the opportunity to expand one’s collection with a selection of songs that will appeal to the fans of the many bands contained within. There’s the deliberately oblique The dad Horse Experience, roots revivalists “DM Bob & Speedy Jake” and the Americana infused Dinosaur Truckers to keep your ears happy even if it falls to musical larcenists The Mokkers to provide a song that might actually kick the barn doors down.

The future is the past and you will find it on Off Label Records with the contents of this compilation providing all the evidence that you might need of that very fact.
