Demo recordings from Luther Russell (Those Pretty Wrongs), Jakob Dylan, and Tobi Miller (The Wallflowers), and Aaron A. Brooks (Moby, Lana Del Rey).

The members of the Bootheels were frontman / songwriter / bassist Luther Russell, who would later lead the Freewheelers before emerging as a prolific solo artist and half of Those Pretty Wrongs (with Big Star’s Jody Stephens); guitarist Jakob Dylan, who would soon achieve stardom as leader of the Wallflowers; future Wallflowers guitarist Tobi Miller, whose instrumental interplay with Dylan provided one of the Bootheels’ most notable sonic features; and drummer Aaron A. Brooks, who would go on to work with Moby, Lana Del Rey, and others).

These tracks (13 on LP plus 3 bonus tracks on CD/Digital) provide a glimpse into the origins of teenage musicians who would rise to greater heights than they could ever have imagined. The packaging contains photos and an aural history of the band.
