Besides the new Racounters new album, the only other release worth mentioning today is The Lemonheads – It’s a Shame About Ray.
Wait a minute…didn’t that come out in 1992?
Yes, it did. But, it’s receiving the good old collector’s edition treatment.
So, here’s what the collector’s edition contains:
Disc one is the original album (with classics like “My Drug Buddy”, their cover of “Mrs. Robinson” and of course the self-titled track), plus ten bonus tracks; which are mainly demos of tracks from the album, but still very cool.
Disc two is a DVD filled with lots of goodies, like three live videos from Australia, such as “Ride With Me,” “Alison’s Starting To Happen” and “It’s About Time, eight music videos for tracks that include ”Mrs. Robinson” and “It’s a Shame About Ray”, commentary from the main Lemonhead Evan Dando and some footage of the band having fun in the land down under.
So, for any Lemonhead fan, this a must. And, if you don’t own this classic 90’s album then get out the door and pick yourself up a copy. There is no way that you can resist the fuzzy vocals of Evan Dando over the poppy and melodic alt-rock tracks that were the soundtrack to so many people.
Ah yes, nostalgia.
