  1. The only Violent Femmes albums that I’ve ever owned are the self titled record (which was practically issued to you in the early 90’s along with your first pair of Dr. Martens boots when you joined the scene), The Blind Leading the Naked, and the “best of” collection Add It Up (which is not that great of a “best of” collection IMHO).
