Album: The Jayhawks, Music from the North Country, (Sony)

In an ideal world, a best of the Jayhawks would shift so many copies that the second-hand racks would be full of them, like a 21st- century Best of the Eagles. In reality, this genre-defining alt.country act will probably shift a few thousand units of this rareties, out-takes and track after glorious track of mega-hits-that-never-were collection and then go back to obscurity wondering what they hell they have to do to break through to the other side. This appalling state of affairs can be rectified. The Jayhawks' future is in your hands.
