Real Emotional Trash
The 6 1/2 minute "Pennywhistle Thunder" has been described by one interested observer as "the best song from Real Emotional Trash," albeit one that mysteriously didn't make the final cut. Whether the author shares that assessment I cannot tell you for certain, but consider this—would the Jicks seek to commemorate a major American Holiday like Record Store Day with anything but the finest in unreleased material? We think not.
