Subject: thoughts on Western Family

Well, today I finally got ahold of a tape copy of this Western Family DAT
that David has so kindly been sending to people. (Thanks David! Thanks
Gary!) I've only had the chance to listen to it once, but I have to say
that on first listen I wasn't very impressed. It strikes me that the loud
distorted guitar sound doesn't suit a lot of Pat's music, although Girl
Go sounded just fine, amongst others... my other peeve which is I think
more major peeve are the vocals. Pat's voice seems a bit strained, or
is it just my imagination? Furthermore, the vocals were way too quiet
compared with the rest of the instruments, though that may be the fault
of the venues...

On a more positive side, I really liked Pat singing Over The Rainbow. It
seems a very appropriate song to sing alongside the Condition Blue material.

Was Harlan ever played live?
