  • Years before the alt-country scene exploded with the release of Uncle Tupelo's first album, Rank and File were a band of punk rock veterans who embraced the sound and feel of classic country music, but with a stripped-down sound and a lyrical stance that embraced leftist politics and a jaundiced eye toward the hipster music scene. Led by Chip and Tony Kinman of the fabled L.A. punk band the Dils and featuring Alejandro Escovedo before he founded the roots rock band the True Believers and went on to a celebrated solo career, Rank and File recorded two fine albums for the celebrated Los Angeles indie label Slash Records, and The Slash Years includes both of them in their entirety: 1982's lean and two-stepping debut Sundown and 1984's more polished and atmospheric Long Gone Dead -- in addition, the set features four rare non-LP tracks as a bonus. While this features nothing from the band's self-titled 1987 swan song for Rhino Records, it's a thorough collection of the group's best and most celebrated work, and three decades later this music is still smart, high-spirited, and thoroughly engaging; fans of classic country or roots rock will eat this up. ~ Mark Deming
