Green Eggs and Crack (1987)
Too Much Joy’s first LP, self-released in 1987, then (happily) hard to find for a decade until they re-released it in 1997. It was recorded in fits and starts, beginning when the band members were in high-school, and finishing as they were getting out of college. So cut it some slack.
This is the re-release, which includes 5 bonus tracks — 2 from the original sessions, and 3 from 1993, by which time they’d actually learned how to play and sing. The ringers are at the end. If you click the button below to buy the digital download package, you’ll get a PDF of the booklet that was included in the CD re-release, which has a reminiscence from Tim about the making of the record (and its aftermath), and an essay by early supporter Joe Williams, who once took Tim and Tommy on a debauched spree to Tijuana…but that’s another story.
