Dramarama - 10-10-1990, Max's On Broadway, Baltimore, MA (FM)

I'd be lying if I said I was a huge Dramarama fan. But I came across this tape many years ago at the old Infinite Foolishness blog (if you're out there, my guy, leave me a comment!) and was blown away by how red-hot this performance was.

You can practically see Dramarama frontman John Easdale pacing the stage, bantering with the audience ("oh it's great to be here in Baltimore," he drawls, "it really is'), before launching into a high-powered version of "Last Cigarette."

Indeed, if you're unsure about this boot, then try just that track and see how it gets you. For me, it's as good as anything the Faces did live, and when they were on, they were really on. So, I guess, was this lineup of Dramarama.

Oh, and if you're really tempted by this show, Rhino has a one-disc Best Of that you can snag over at Discogs.
