The King and I

Blueyedog VTDOG11 10", released 1994 (UK)
Contains the Afghan Whigs song "What Jail is Like (acoustic version)"

This was an odd British compilation. I am including it because of the exclusive version of "What Jail is Like." It is also often referred to as "The Human Ear is Now Employed to 'Mix' the Music," mainly because that is what is on the sleeve's spine. Black vinyl, limited to 3000 numbered copies. Very inexpensive. Oddly, test pressings have surfaced on both black and red vinyl.
