THIS JUST IN….Our Portuguese correspondent JM, who is somehow way up on this news flash despite having to transcend an ocean to get the gossip, relays the breaking story that the oft-rumored CRIME box set is truly weeks away. The word of the street is that Revenant has it slated for release next month (!), and that it’s actually a double CD of all known Crime material & is called “A Brief History Of Crime”. You mean they couldn’t have taken every piss take & home demo and shoehorned it into 7 CDs like the Charley Patton box? Nuts. There goes the Grammy. Can anyone confirm this sizzlin’-hot rumor?
