Liz Phair - Juvenilia EP (1995)
Ah, Liz Phair. Back in the day, I admired her excellent lo-fi recordings without really having any idea what she looked like. Nowadays, sadly, at least half the photos of her are of her in her knickers. She looks lovely, but it's sad that she feels the need to do that to sell her music. I've not heard any of it for donkey's, so it could be all sexy and stuff now, but when this double-7" came out she was a bit like Pavement, but if they were women who'd been consistently disappointed in their relationships.
This EP also contains some of her earliest recordings, unavailable anywhere else apparently. Good job, get em heard.
