Rusted Root
Evil Ways

First Appeared in The Music Box, June 1997, Volume 4, #6

Written by John Metzger


CD singles and EPs can be as big of a rip-off as 45s once were. This isn't so with the new release from Rusted Root. It's cheaper than many EPs and contains nearly 30 minutes worth of outstanding music. Better still, it isn't necessary to purchase the movie soundtracks for Home for the Holidays and Twister in order to fill in the missing pieces of one's Rusted Root collection. Both of the group's contributions (Evil Ways and Virtual Reality) appear here as well as outstanding live versions of the anthemic Cruel Sun, the previously unreleased Big White Bird, and the concert favorite Send Me on My Way.
