What did we think to The Gaslight Anthem's brief stop-off before they record a new album? Take a peek.

It’s usually right to be cautious about collections like this one – however for a band as good as The Gaslight Anthem, the chance to hear a host of rare tracks is something to relish. The excellent ‘She Loves You’ and an impassioned acoustic version of ‘The ’59 Sound’ get things off to a great start, while excellent covers of The Rolling Stones and Fake Problems are worthy additions to the Gaslight canon. Some of the live tracks on here are a little scratchy sounding but re-worked versions of ‘Great Expectations’ and ‘The Queen Of Lower Chelsea’ quieten any simmering cynicism about the point of this record.
