It's A Shame About Ray, their fourth release, was the album that pushed the band into the spotlight, after a cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "Mrs Robinson" that was recorded to coincide with the release of The Graduate (with Dustin Hoffman) onto video. The cover is fun but sounds rushed. It's the longest, weakest song on the album and was only added to the re-released version of the album. It's in stark contrast to the opening track, "Rockin' Stroll". But by their next release Come On Feel The Lemonheads Dando was combating his addiction and the band's popularity had peaked. Talk about wasted talent. Luckily Dando is still writing and touring and back from the dark side. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Licence.

The 90’s have been over for a very very long time and this album is just about 20 years old. It’s a bit shocking to know how much this has aged, and yet remain a classic
It’s not always easy to remember these things: in 1992, did It’s A Shame About Ray sound quite so poignant, so tender, so presciently damaged? If memory serves, we all jumped on this, Evan Dando’s fifth Lemonheads album, as a sort of exuberant and charming riposte to grunge. Dando had gradually steered his brattish Boston punk band into becoming a rough-edged powerpop outfit. Compared with, say, Alice In Chains, the Lemonheads certainly sounded fun, if not quite the lightweights they were portrayed as in the wake of that ill-advised dash through Mrs Robinson
