Juliana Hatfield & Evan Dando Live On The World Cafe 1993
Juliana Hatfield have a lot of history between them, from their days in Boston in the mid 80's while she was a member of the Blake Babies, to more recently when they toured together as a acoustic duo. On record, she was a member of the Lemonheads for the "classic", It's A Shame About Ray and Evan has a made appearances on Blake Babies records including the 2001's reunion album, God Bless The Blake Babies. In 1999, Juliana recorded a duet with Dando for a Gram Parson's Tribute, Return Of The Grievous Angel, they sang $1000 Wedding. Personally, they are at the very least good friends and there's probably more to it than that, but I don't care too much about that stuff since this is a music blog. Regardless, they have known each other for some 20 years and it would have been sweet to see them on their tour last year. I heard the reviews were kind of mixed, but it would have been an opportunity to hear them trade off songs from their extensive catalogs of music.
Today's post is a short radio performance and interview from 1993 when they did some radio promos for the It's A Shame About Ray record and Juliana's, Hey Babe and her second album, Become What You Are. I have a two other similar recordings from before and after this date also from 1993, but I have those still only on cassette (I may transfer them eventually). A nice little set, a teaser for possibly more Juliana, as I've had some requests. I'll see what I can do. Stay tuned.
