Album Review

Ever since 1984's What's the Point?, R. Stevie Moore has released the occasional CD compilation collecting some of the literally hundreds of songs he's issued on cassette since 1968. Released in 2002, Hundreds of Hiding Places is rather atypical in that, along with fan favorites like 1978's "Puttin' Up the Groceries" (one of Moore's most popular tunes), 1987's memorable rocker "Sort of Way," and 1977's ghostly, gloomy "Steve," the 21-track compilation includes a fairly large number of instrumentals.

Longtime fans might appreciate this a bit more than newcomers, however.

Stevie Moore Cassette Club, a mail-order operation that has hundreds of individually dubbed cassettes and CD-Rs in its catalog. The handful of traditional LPs and CDs Moore has released since 1975 are primarily...
