Reissue release notes: As a companion piece to the vinyl reissue of Bee Thousand, Scat Records presents a new edition of this finest compilation of Guided By Voices outtakes. Originally included with the multi-disc set Box, this issue marks the albumís first release as a standalone piece. The first side features highlights from two otherwise unreleased albums from the bandís early days (Learning to Hunt and Back to Saturn X), while the second side mops up the best cuts left off of Bee Thousand. All tracks are exclusive to this release.

Packaged in a high-quality, heavy-duty tip-on jacket and pressed on virgin RTI vinyl, this LP is a must for even the casual GBV fan.

Additional notes from Scat's website, posted on Nov. 8, 2014, after talking about the Bee Thousand LP reissue: It also seemed like a good idea to reissue the kind-of companion LP, King Shit and the Golden Boys, whose second side is filled with the best Bee Thousand outtakes, while side one mops up some earlier unreleased LPs. Previously only available as part of Box, this marks the album's first issue as a stand-alone piece. The original mastering was quite good, and archival to boot (cut in copper), so it has not been updated.
