The “Jackpot Plus!” session finds Jawbox both at the height of their songwriting powers and in the middle of a major transition. It is the first recording to feature Zach Barocas after the departure of long-time drummer Adam Wade, and it is the band’s final recording for Dischord Records. Shortly after the release of this single Jawbox signed with Atlantic for whom they released their final two albums. Both of the songs on this single were re-recorded and included on the “For Your Own Special Sweetheart” album. This single has been out of print for many years and has been remastered and reissued in time for summer 2011.
