When Wherehouse music went out of business in 2003 I bought every single album available from Vagrant records. Probably the first and only time (other than the first year or so of drive-thru) that I accepted a record label as an infallible stamp of quality.
Yeah, Drive-Thru was the only label that was more a lock that if they put out a record, I would like it. Those 2 labels were the best. I give the edge to Vagrant just because they had Trio and Face To Face, easily my two favorite bands ever lol.
