The compilation contains a CD of previously unreleased tracks composed of film scores, demos, compilation tracks and tribute pieces which frontwoman Melora Creager describes as "essentially solo works, [Her] initial compositions and impulses." It also contains a Bonus DVD that includes a live performance as well as Q&A session recorded in 2002 at the Knitting Factory, in New York.[1][2]

Notes
  • The disc contains a bonus DVD that contains Rasputina's live performance at the Knitting Factory in NYC in 2002. It features Rasputina's old lineup from around that period. It also features a Q&A session. As is often the case with Rasputina's anachronistic sense of humor, the performance is credited to have been recorded in 1902.[1][2]
