About to Choke appeared only a few months after the Vic Chesnutt tribute album Sweet Relief II, which meant that it received more attention in the media than most of his other records. However, it's likely that it would have been put into the spotlight anyway, since it is another exceptional set of songs, delivered with a gritty vulnerability that makes his music so affecting.

About to Choke is a 1996 album by Vic Chesnutt, an American singer/songwriter and t who was known for his raw, expressive vocals. It was his fifth album overall and his first for a major label. All songs written by Vic Chesnutt. (It's No Secret) Satisfaction" – 1:02. Little Vacation" – 3:43.

That tribute introduced Chesnutt to a wider audience, and About to Choke, released just a few months afterward, promised to build on that buzz. Rather than another like Drunk or Is the Actor Happy?, which featured full-band arrangements and some of his most direct songwriting, About to Choke was "a lonely kind of deal," he told The Onion's . It mostly featured Chesnutt accompanying himself on guitar, piano, and a Yamaha Portasound PSS-480. Fourteen years later, Plain Recordings' barebones reissue depicts a very curious entry in Chesnutt's tragically truncated catalog. To a certain extent, it's his final solo album, as almost all of his subsequent efforts were marked by creative collaborations that threw his unique talents into sharp relief.

Notes

"This album is dedicated to all good folks that sent me letters and never got a single response, like those that wrote me to say "don't die" and those that wanted to know who is Danny Carlisle, Steve Willoughby and Bill Lowery and those that wanted to know if Tina was my sister or if we just had the same last name, and those that wanted to know what "booted up" meant and those that could never find my old albums...

Some of the album may be a bit obsessed with the premise that through death, life is nourished."
