(Inedible Casserole #1)
Released: April, 1983
Available format: cassette
Most of these tapes (unless otherwise specified) were recorded at the
Mt Cod Studios (sometimes known as Rob's basement, dining room, and
living room - thanks, Boit) on a 4 track TEAC back in 1979 &
Vince was the engineer. Here's the rundown:
1. TAKE YOUR TIME (Holly) - This was the legendary Eric
Rosenfeld's idea, and that's him playing those snappy leads
2. WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO KNOW (Shook) - live at the Beachcomber, our
home bar in Wellfleet, MA
3. POLAR HEAT RAG THERAPY -
featuring Vince & Chandler in a run-in with the deadly gas
4. AL IN ACTION - the
great Al Bombo fixes the van (again) in an actual location recording.
You are there!
5. THE IDIOT -
Vince & Chandler again with the musical version.
6. SESSION MAN (Davies) - Rosenfeld strikes again
in a live tape of the pre-Spampinato Casuals (at that time referred to
as the Susan Anton People) wrestling a great old Kinks tune to a draw
at the Sun in Eastham.
8. WE ARE FROM FRUITARAMA -
a song of joy. Perhaps we spend too much time together.
7. OOO OOO (Travis) - Steve (always the
romantic) renders this one harmless with Eric once again doing his part
on lead (Listen especially for very lovely crooning on the fade).
9. IT DON'T REALLY MATTER (Shook) - and you didn't think we could
handle 7/4. Vince on vibes.
1. I DON'T NEED (Travis) - another sensitive love
song. The band track represents the first encounter of Travis &
Shook with Vince Valium - needless to say, The Earth Moved. We
just added the vocules last week - the track is from 1977. Chandler on
2. SQUIGGLY BANANA -
The vocal stylings of
Al Bomba live at the Chicken Box on Nantucket: from the time Steve got
sick. This one was an instant song, featuring everyone on instruments
they're unaccustomed to, as is frequently the case on instant songs.
What you do is figure out a title, count off, and presto! - an instant
song! This one guest stars Sam from Philadelphia - (Whose last name we
should know by now, on guitar (I think)).
3. MONEY WON'T BUY YOU HAPPINESS (Travis) - The original, better, home tape
version. Greg Abate from Channel One on sax.
4. RED RED ROBIN (?) -
spring is here.
5. FIREMAN BILL'S CALYPSO BREAKDOWN (Spring) - NRBQ's Keith Spring
wrote and helped perform this one from the bad old days of T.S. and the
Club Wow. Recorded at Clark University, Worcester, MA.
6. SAY GOODBYE (Travis) - goodbye.
7. R.N. (I LOVE A GIRL IN UNIFORM) (Shook) - Steve says it with music.
