Product Overview

Cracker may be considered a somewhat traditional rock band (almost comparable to roots rock at times), yet singer/guitarist David Lowery's roots were anything but traditional since he fronted the '80s alternative outfit Camper Van Beethoven. Shortly after Camper Van Beethoven called it quits in 1990, Lowery began demoing material along with guitarist Johnny Hickman and bassist Davey Faragher, eventually going by the name Cracker. By 1991, the newly formed band had signed a recording contract with Virgin and enlisted the help of several drummers (such as Jim Keltner), issuing their self-titled debut in 1992. This debut melded influences as diverse as psychedelia, country rock, and delta blues, forging a style that was at once ethnic yet universal. Cracker sold over 200,000 copies, and doubled this with their second release, Kerosene Hat, which became their best selling album with the rock radio track, Low. During the early 21st century, Cracker has continued to tour and release CDs.

Greatest Hits – Redux is the OFFICIALLY SANCTIONED GREATEST HITS PACKAGE, and is the title Cracker will encourage all of their fans to buy. It will contain all of Cracker's hits like Low, Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now) and Eurotrash Girl, but RERECORDED, as well as containing A NEW BONUS TRACK.

As the chief creative force behind Camper Van Beethoven, one of the most fun and inventive indie rock bands of the 1980s, David Lowry had plenty of cred under his belt when he formed Cracker in 1990. Lowry focused the punk-folk-country-rock sound of Camper into a more mainstream-friendly package, and the mainstream responded in kind by making hits of Cracker songs like "Low," "Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now)," and "Euro-Trash Girl" (all of which are included here).
Fans looking for a Cracker hits compilation may be confused by the appearance of two sets on two different labels. While Virgin's GET ON WITH IT: THE BEST OF CRACKER features the original studio versions of the band's singles and favorites, REDUX, on the Cooking Vinyl label, features versions of many of the same songs re-recorded specifically for this set. The different versions should be of interest to Cracker devotees, while either set should satisfy the casual listener.
