Boston singer-songwriter Evan Dando broke through to the mainstream in 1992 with Mrs Robinson , a Simon and Garfunkel cover that took his band the Lemonheads to the UK Top 20. But this was the tip of a musical iceberg founded on an indie-label career that had set the press purring. Our generous 47-track compilation profiles the idiosyncratic talent behind the classic It s A Shame About Ray album and much more zesty music.

The minor quibbles aside this is 47 tracks for a fiver. This is a band that just made you smile (except when I saw them live a couple of years ago as they were the only band I have ever seen without an encore, he looked miserable). The odd track might be missing but overall this is a great reminder of how good Evan Dando and his chums at that particular moment could be.
Still, we live in the Ipod era, where most people pick and choose tracks and firmly believe that more is indeed more, downloading everything and anything left right and centre due to the incredible availability of modern music. In that context, the record works perfectly, giving huge value for its £4.99 price here in the UK, with every period of the band represented and even with some harder to find stuff present, B-Sides and EP tracks and such. In terms of all their great songs, it's pretty completist.
The music speaks for itself, melodic, rocking, vulnerable and gutsy. The criticism for some is that they're too lightweight and fluffy, but honestly I find that refreshing, especially as an antidote to the grunge era they thrived in. If you've never heard them before, I can't recommend this enough. Production is good as well, not sure if they've cleaned up some of the early stuff but it sounds like it.
On a sidenote, this is still a good purchase if you already own most of the albums, since a lot of the tracks come in the alternative single versions, some with slight but interesting changes ('The Outdoor Type') and some sounding radically different ('Down About It').
