Jawbox for your own special sweetheart 1994 full album

For Your Own Special Sweetheart is the third album by Washington D.C. post-hardcore band, Jawbox. It was produced by Ted Niceley, best known for his work with Fugazi. It was their first album after leaving Dischord Records to sign to Atlantic Records. The album was not much of a commercial success, despite being well received by critics.


"Savory" was the album's first single, followed by "Cooling Card". "Motorist" and "Jackpot Plus!" had previously been released on a Dischord single and were newly recorded for this album. "Savory" was covered by Sacramento rock band Deftones with alternative rock group Far on Deftones' B-Sides and Rarities album.

The album was remastered and reissued by DeSoto in 2009 with three bonus tracks (B-sides to the "Savory" single) and new cover art. On the original album, "U-Trau" is 3:10. On the 2006 iTunes Store re-release by DeSoto, it is 3:01.
