Review of It's A Shame About Ray - Collector's Edition
by Stephen Worthy
From NME - 29th March 2008
It's 16 years since Evan Dando's band released this pop masterpiece - a shiny slab of grunge-lite that turned him into an alt.rock pin-up. Their cover of Simon & Garfunkel's Mrs. Robinson still shines on this edition, which adds on demos and a DVD of promos. A timely reminder of a talent curtailed by addiction.
