The Tragically Hip's debut EP was released only in the Kingston, Ontario area in late 1987 and then eventually Canada wide in January 1988. After doing a cross country tour to support the release of the EP, the band was signed a long term contract with MCA Records in December 1988.
A live version of "Highway Girl" was released in 1991 as a B-side to "Twist My Arm", in which Gord Downie tells the story of a suicide pact between a man and his girlfriend. It was a hit on Canadian radio, allowing the song to chart considerably higher than in it's original form.
The EP has three college radio hits "Small Town Bringdown", "Highway Girl" and "Last American Exit".
Heavyweight vinyl produced by MusicVaultz for MCA Records in 2016.
