Compilation der drei Alben, die die Kultband 1993 und 1995 auf East West sowie 2001 auf Atlantic Records veröffentlichte - samt sieben Non-Album-Bonustracks.
Originally forming in Germantown, Maryland, USA in 1991, Clutch comprised of Dan Maines (bass), Jean-Paul Gaster (drums), Tim Sult (guitar) and Neil Fallon (vocals) when they signed to Warner imprint East West Records in 1993 for their first full-length album, “Transnational Speedway League: Anthems, Anecdotes, and Undeniable Truths”. Produced by Jon Burnside and Steven Haigler, the album is a good showcase for their earlier, more American punk and hardcore influenced roots. Also released by East West, tracks such as ‘Escape from the Prison Planet’, ‘Spacegrass’ and ‘Big News’ from 1995’s self-titled “Clutch” album saw the band move more towards a bluesy, stoner rock vibe in 1995. After several independently released records, plus a brief spell on Columbia, Clutch signed to Atlantic for their fifth long-player, the self-explanatory “Pure Rock Fury” in 2001. Notable for guest appearances from stoner rock legend Scott “Wino” Weinrich (The Obsessed, Saint Vitus & Spirit Caravan), as well as Mountain’s Leslie West, the latter co-wrote the song ‘Immortal’ with Neil Fallon. Released as a single, ‘Immortal’ was adapted from the Leslie West song ‘Baby I’m Down’. “Pure Rock Fury” concludes with a live version of ‘Spacegrass’ from 1995’s “Clutch” album. CD4 collects together seven non-album tracks; ‘Tight Like That’ (Edit Remix) originally appeared on the promo E.P. “Songs Of Much Gravity; ‘Apache’ appeared as an extra track on the ‘Big News’ single, as well as the Japanese edition of the “Clutch” album; ‘Immortal’ (Remix) was an extra track on the ‘Immortal’ single; 7 Jam was recorded live at The Metropol, Pittsburgh, PA.; Careful With That Mic… (Radio Edit), ‘Guild Of Mute Assassins’ and the near 13 minute version of ‘Frankenstein’ (Extended) were all taken from the “Careful With That E.P.” collection.
