The Scruffs: Wanna Meet The Scruffs?

Jason Gross, Perfect Sound Forever, May 1998

THE MOST part of the whole wave of CD reissues is seeing these obscure gems that you're positive no one else could possibly care about to go ahead and take the trouble to reissue actually come to life again. When I saw that the lone album by the Scruffs, Wanna Meet The Scruffs? (an impossible rarity until now), was actually out on CD, I gladly plunked my money down for this plastic-coated aluminum reissue. I hadn't listened to it until shortly before this and quickly remembered how good it was. Now, everyone had the chance to rediscover this beautiful little piece of history and I just have to tell the world about it.

Total word count of piece: 1939
