Eleventh Dream Day - Prairie School Freakout Prairie School Freakout
Pop New - LP A 003 Amoeba
Sealed 1988 Original. “Although They Had Released An EP Prior To This, Prairie School Freakout Really Marked The Arrival Of Eleventh Dream Day. Somewhat Disappointed With Their First Effort, EDD Decided To Basically Cut This Album Live, And What You Hear Is The Sound Of A Young Band Letting It All Hang Out. Things Get Off To A Blistering Start With "Watching Candles Burn," And The Energy Hardly Lets Up At All Throughout The Set. With A Great Batch Of Tunes And The Guitars Turned Up To 11, The Bandmembers Tears Into These Songs As Though Their Lives Depended On It, And Flat Out Deliver. Neil Young & Crazy Horse (Music-Wise) Are An Obvious Point Of Comparison, As Are Dream Syndicate And Maybe X, But EDD Are All Midwesterners, And Maybe That's What Helps Make Their Sound Distinctive. Janet Beveridge Bean And Douglas Mccombs Are A Solid Rhythm Section, And Rick Rizzo And Baird Figi Make A Glorious Racket When It's Time To Solo, Especially On The Epic-Length "Tenth Leaving Train" (From The Wayne EP). "Beach Miner" Drops A Richard Lloyd Guitar Figure Over A Crazy Horse Chord Progression For A Tune That'll Stick In Your Head For Days. Then There's The Odd Narrative Of "Among The Pines," Where A Man Splits His Head Open Slipping In The Shower, And The Tale Of Killer "Albert C. Samson." No Wonder Atlantic Took Notice. Eleventh Dream Day Went On To Construct Better Overall Albums, But They Never Rocked Harder Than On Prairie School Freakout. This Album Smokes.” Sean Westergaard, AMG.... more details
 
Eleventh Dream Day - Beet Beet
Pop New - LP 82053 Atlantic
Sealed & Pristine 1989 Original With Custom Song Sticker On Shrink. “Quite How Eleventh Dream Day Got Onto A Full-Fledged Major In The Pre-Nirvana Days Is Still A Bit Of A Mystery. Not That The Band Ever Sounded Like Nirvana Per Se, It's Just That Their Own Rough-And-Ready Take On Fine And Fiery Rock Stuck Out Like A Sore Thumb On Most Of Atlantic's Roster At The Time (Just Take A Look At All The Hair Metal They Signed Then And Try Not To Seize Up In Bewilderment). More Than A Decade On, Beet Is Still A Grand Listen, As Good A Showcase For The Wider World Of The Killer Rizzo/Beveridge Bean Vocal Duo And The Band's Overall Kick And Inspired Songs As Could Have Been Hoped For. Comparisons Can Range From Neil Young To A More Guitar-Tinged Tom Waits, But One Thing Eleventh Dream Day Never Forgets Is A Sense Of The Immediate Instead Of The Overly Reverent. Whether It's A Hint Of Down-Home Motorik Here Or Psych-Sprawling Rave-Ups There — Or All Of That At Once, As The Brilliant "Bagdad's Last Ride" Shows — Beet Sparkles With Life. A Worthy Storytelling Air To Many Of Its Songs (Besides "Bagdad's Last Ride," Try The Character Sketch "Michael Dunne" Or "Teenage Pin Queen") Is A Welcome Bonus, But The Real Reason To Listen Is The Music All Around. If Gary Waleik's Production Sounds Like It's Holding Back Once Or Twice — The More Explosive Parts Still Sound Restrained In Comparison To Much That Would Come Later — It's Perhaps An Understandable Trade-Off In Terms Of Getting The Band Out There To The Wider World. When The Band Does Let Loose, As On The Righteous Instrumental Break Of "Testify" Or The Fried, On-The-Edge Jam That Concludes "Road That Never Winds," The Results Are Well-Worth The Wait.” – Ned Raggett, All Music Guide... more details
