My song "Calling Over Time" (the same version that later appeared on my first album of the same name) was included on this Japanese compilation CD, along with tracks by Palace Brothers, Royal Trux, The Red Krayola, Gastr del Sol, Smog, Flying Saucer Attack, Plush, Silver Jews, and Cynthia Dall.

Released sometime around the spring of 1996; I’m not sure of the exact date.  I can’t read Japanese, but it’s almost certainly out of print, and isn’t available on Drag City’s site either.
