This rare promotional 2LP features alternate versions of most of the tracks from Matthew Sweet's Girlfriend (1991), plus two cover songs (the exception to the album concept being "Someone To Pull The Trigger," which is from the Altered Beast album).

A home-recorded acoustic version of the normally crunch-heavy "Divine Intervention" shows up here as an appealing slab of amphetamine folk. Acoustic renditions of "Looking at the Sun" and "Winona" also work amazingly well. In addition, there are several live tracks, the cream of the crop being an appropriately bruised and searing version of Neil Young's "Cortez Killer" that features guest vocals by the Indigo Girls' Amy Ray.
