Evan Dando - Baby I'm Bored
2LP plus 24 page book + DL Card. Emerging after The Lemonheads disbanded Evan Dando returned to music first with a solo tour and ‰Û÷Live At The Brattle Theatre‰۪ then came his debut solo album ‰Û÷Baby I‰۪m Bored‰۪. During his hiatus he sobered up, got married and went straight. Taking four years to produce, his live shows funded the album‰۪s recording sessions. Mature and autobiographical, ‰Û÷Baby I‰۪m Bored‰۪ is a stellar record that stripped Dando of his grunge label. At the time of recording, he was without the band which saw him lean more towards an achingly melodic alt-country rock sound. Self-deprecating, these are songs of decline and coming back from that. The record includes ‰ÛÏHard Drive‰ and ‰ÛÏAll My Life‰ two tracks penned by Ben Lee and features contributions from producer/composer Jon Brion, producer Bryce Goggin, Tom Morgan, Giant Sand‰۪s Howe Gelb, Calexico's John Convertino and Joey Burns, ex-Spacehog frontman Royston Langdon, Come's Chris Brokaw and Arthur Johnson. This limited edition special Record Store Day 2LP ‰Û÷bookback‰۪ reissue includes a disc of unheard unreleased tracks, singles, b-sides and rarities. ‰ÛÏDando has a flair for bruised melancholy that stands comparison with Gram Parsons and Alex Chilton.‰ Q MagazineåÊ /åÊ ‰ÛÏA beautiful album of tender reflections on life, love and drug-induced folly set in soulful, country-tinged guitar pop.‰ The IndependentåÊ / Disc 1 A1 RepeatåÊ A2 My Idea A3 Rancho Santa Fe A4 Waking Up A5 Hard Drive A6 Shots Is Fired B1 It Looks Like You B2 The Same Thing You Thought Hard About Is The Same Part I Can Live Without B3 Why Do You Do This To Yourself?
