    I have a translucent blue vinyl copy of "The Horse They Rode in On". I've had it since the album was first released. Is that pretty common?

    I saw them open for Keith and the Winos. A great night from both bands.

    I always liked Grave Dancers Union. Also their cover of Victoria Williams' Summer of Drugs from Sweet Relief:

    The first Lemonheads album is also VERY Hüsker Dü :) They had such an impact.

    Funnily enough, i have a Lemonheads bootleg and Evan Dando said "stay tuned for Soul Asylum". They were on the same bill/tour.

    I wish I could have seen the face of the people working at A&M when "Grave Dancers Union" became a platinum selling album...on Columbia, after they dropped the band :D

    Made to Be Broken and Hang Time are both chock full of great songs. MtBB is more diverse with it's approach and thus gets my top spot.

    This is a great outtake:

    Always loved the guitar solo in Just like Anyone. Pure 90s lead

    ditto all of that, I was at the same show. I'd say they were THE BEST LIVE BAND ON THE PLANET from 1988-92. I think of Soul Asylum as contemporaries of those guys.

    bonus fun facts:

    1) Bob Mould produced Made To Be Broken

    2) that is Soul Asylum frontman Dave Pirner yelling "**** you man" during the cops breaking up the party intro to the Replacements' "Kids Don't Follow" off the Stink EP. It was actually a recording of the cops breaking up a party.
