The Lemonheads It's A Shame About Ray on Colored LP
Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
After numerous line-up changes and independent releases, the Lemonheads signed to Atlantic Records for their 1990 release Lovey. It was with that record that Evan Dando began to move away from Replacements style punk-pop into more gentle and jangly territory, and it's here, on the band's high-water mark It's A Shame About Ray (1992), that he perfected his vision and launched the Lemonheads into international stardom. Featuring Blake Babies member Juliana Hatfield, It's A Shame About Ray is not only one of the hookiest and catchiest records of the alternative era, but a jangle-pop classic on par with The Byrds' Eight Miles High and R.E.M.'s Life's Rich Pageant.
