Review: The Lemonheads - Laughing All The Way to the Cleaners

Lemonheads - Laughing All The Way to the Cleaners/The Best Of

This definitive two-CD set delivers a very comprehensive overview of the contribution that Evan Dando and his various cohorts made to the alternative rock scene during their creative heyday in their early nineties.

The bulk of the 47 tracks showcased here date from this highly productive period in Dando’s rather erratic career, including self-penned gems such as It’s A Shame About Ray and an eclectic assortment of cover versions led by Simon and Garfunkel’s Mrs.Robinson, Suzanne Vega’s Luka and the late great Kirsty MacColl’s He’s On the Beach.
