Background[edit | edit source]

On 28 November 2016 Heavy Psych Sounds and Nick Oliveri would formally announce the N.O. Hits At All series, with Oliveri making the following statement:

"This record is the Volume One of a series of compilations in which I recorded the vocals. Bands that I like and bands that like my singing voice enough to have asked me to “guest vocal” on a song for their records. Some of these have been released and some have not until now. I have sang and/or recorded bass on 50+ releases of bands I love and had the great honor to work with – Dwarves, Mondo Generator, Svetlanas, Q.O.T.S.A, Kyuss, Bl'Ast, Bloodclo, Masters Of Reality, Vista Chino, Mark Lenagan Band, Turbonegro, Death Acoustic, The Uncontrollable, to name a few. The good folks at Heavy Psych Sounds Records are releasing a series called N.O. Hits At All. Now for the first time, all these songs and bands I’ve recorded with over the past 25 years are together and available to you to trip out on. So get your head right, put this record on and play it loud!"
— Nick Oliveri, Official Statement [1]

N.O. Hits At All Vol. 1 would see release on Digital, CD, Black Vinyl and Transparent Red Vinyl (350 copies) via Heavy Psych Sounds to positive reviews. The second volume would follow that July.
