The first great tragedy of Sublime was the fatal heroin overdose of singer and guitarist Brad Nowell in 1996. The second great tragedy was the outpouring of compilations containing any smidgen of Sublime demos, outtakes, bootlegs, live versions, remixes regardless of how rehashed or half-assed. This double disc contains the hits "What I Got," "Santeria," and "Wrong Way," along with Nowell's impromptu solo version of Bob Marley's "Trenchtown Rock," which appeared on another posthumous compilation, Second Hand Smoke. Disc two packs alternate, acoustic, and instrumental versions of old Sublime songs, including the stellar ska tune "Superstar Punani" (also on Second Hand Smoke) and the seldom-heard "Little District." But since you can only squeeze so much blood from a dead band, we also get five different remixes of "Doin' Time," straight in a row.
