Between here and there

Last weekend, my wife made borscht (pretty good too). And I played BORSCHT by Eleventh Dream Day.

Chicago's WXRT broadcast a whole Eleventh Dream Day show from Lounge Ax. Atlantic Records pulled 7 songs from the broadcast to release on a promotional record called BORSCHT. It was a companion release to the BEET album.

The best song on the record is the furious "Bagdad's Last Ride" This is the one to get if you are only going to download one song. "Go" and "Testify" are pretty good, too.

There are also a couple of songs from EDD's previous LP on Amoeba Records. "Go" was originally on an EP called WAYNE and re-recorded for BEET. There's a studio version of "Between Here & There" from BEET as well. It was a promo record, after all.

If you don't already have a copy of BEET, go find one. It's a terrific LP. Check the used bins. The thing to remember about Eleventh Dream Day is you need to listen to them very loudly and over speakers. They don't sound as good on headphones, these guitars need space.
