The taper ran out of tape on the last song, a Big Star cover,
so it fades out and then back in once he inserted a new tape.

For a brief period in the early 90s I became  a fan of Evan Dando and the Lemonheads.  To this day I really love It’s a Shame About Ray.  I say I became a brief fan because not long after that album, and the folow up, Come on Feel… I stopped listening to them.  I had never bothered with their previous albums, and I have yet to get anything other than those two.   I suppose you could call me a casual fan, or only a hit listener, but the truth is that for those couple of years I really loved that band.  But as with so many things I simply lost touch with them.

This is an acoustic solo show with just Evan Dando.  The sound quality is really wonderful, and his performance is nice.  There is a cool mix of old Lemonhead numbers and all kinds of quirky covers.  Exactly what I want with this kind of show.  Be warned though, that when Dando starts talking he often sounds like a complete moron.  Dude, just shut up and sing!
