Perfect- Pachyderm Studios, July 7, 1996

Tommy Stinson's next band after Bash & Pop was Perfect, who formed in 1995. Their only official release during their brief existence was the near-perfect, when Squirrels Play Chicken EP, that (in my option) is the best collection of songs Stinson has recorded. A close second would be the follow-up full length the band recorded, but was shelved before it was release, Seven Days A Week. I received a "leaked" copy in a trade many years ago and it was a head shaker to why it didn't get released. Advance copies had been sent out (hence the leak), but because their label was bought out by another. Eventually, a remixed and re sequenced version of Seven Days A Week was released as, Once, Twice, Three Times A Maybe in 2004.

The recording below was recorded exactly 17 years ago at Pachyderm Studios in rural Minnesota. The recording has perfect sound as it was broadcast on the radio complete with a studio audience (contest winners?) and a live performance. The songs and performance are great with Tommy in good spirits and the band tight and crisp. An amazing cover of Elton John's, Crocodile Rock conclude this essential set.

The recording date must've been earlier than July 7 since the live recording of "Crocodile Rock" heard here is the same one found at the end of Perfect's "When Squirrels Play Chicken" EP, which was released July 9. Anyone know the actual recording date?

Thanks for the download!
