Buffalo Tom


Beggars Banquet
Released 27 May 2002

Buffalo Tom began life as a trio of pre-grunge, neo-psychedelic guitar maulers, but over the next dozen years they matured into a considerably more dynamic and intelligent band, capable of generating crunching rockers or acoustic ballads with equal precision, all of which possessed heart, soul, and a compassionate intelligence.

This album brings together 19 songs from singles, EPs and compilation albums, all of which never made it onto a proper Buffalo Tom album. It is, in the best sense, a loving gesture for the fans and offers a splendid reminder of why this band matters.
