• Originally forming in Germantown, Maryland, USA in 1991, Clutch comprised of Dan Maines (bass), Jean-Paul Gaster (drums), Tim Sult (guitar) and Neil Fallon (vocals) when they signed to Warner imprint East West Records in 1993 for their first full-length album, “Transnational Speedway League: Anthems, Anecdotes, and Undeniable Truths”. Produced by Jon Burnside and Steven Haigler, the album is a good showcase for their earlier, more American punk and hardcore influenced roots.

• Also released by East West, tracks such as ‘Escape from the Prison Planet’, ‘Spacegrass’ and ‘Big News’ from 1995’s self-titled “Clutch” album saw the band move more towards a bluesy, stoner rock vibe in 1995.

• After several independently released records, plus a brief spell on Columbia, Clutch signed to Atlantic for their fifth long-player, the self-explanatory “Pure Rock Fury” in 2001. Notable for guest appearances from stoner rock legend Scott “Wino” Weinrich (The Obsessed, Saint Vitus & Spirit Caravan), as well as Mountain’s Leslie West, the latter co-wrote the song ‘Immortal’ with Neil Fallon. Released as a single, ‘Immortal’ was adapted from the Leslie West song ‘Baby I’m Down’. “Pure Rock Fury” concludes with a live version of ‘Spacegrass’ from 1995’s “Clutch” album.

• CD4 collects together seven non-album tracks; ‘Tight Like That’ (Edit Remix) originally appeared on the promo E.P. “Songs Of Much Gravity; ‘Apache’ appeared as an extra track on the ‘Big News’ single, as well as the Japanese edition of the “Clutch” album; ‘Immortal’ (Remix) was an extra track on the ‘Immortal’ single; 7 Jam was recorded live at The Metropol, Pittsburgh, PA.; Careful With That Mic… (Radio Edit), ‘Guild Of Mute Assassins’ and the near 13 minute version of ‘Frankenstein’ (Extended) were all taken from the “Careful With That E.P.” collection.
