Synopsis

Amazon.com
A double-dozen (give or take a few, they don't mind) songs about love, life, and chickens, Big Grapefruit Cleanup Job presents the wacky funsters of Ed's Redeeming Qualities at their best--live, in front of a hometown (well, an adopted hometown) audience. Transplants from the Northeast to San Francisco, the trio--Buckets and Breeders veteran Carrie Bradley, restaurant critic Dan Leone, and children's book author Jonah Winter--specialize in whimsical instrumentation (guitar, a one-string, homemade bass, ukulele, accordion, clarinet, violin) and playful lyrics. Sample: "If all I wanted was in your pants, I would've stole your laundry." Far and away their best album, as their studio recordings never captured the atmosphere of their live show, Grapefruit also features original band member Neno Perrotta. --Randy Silver

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is fun and light-hearted music from a band that was a true delight to see live. I miss their gigs which always drew a crowd of people to dance, sing along, and laugh. In the years since I bought this CD, it has kept my fiance and I entertained on several cross-country drives and makes me smile whenever I slide it into my stereo. My favorites are "The Princess and the Horseman of the Apocalpse...(aka "the Unicorn Song"), "New Jersey", "I Met a Man", "Green Glass", "Driving on 9", "Swiss Chard", and "Calypso on the Beach". I even bought a tee-shirt at one of the gigs with the cover art and lyrics to all the songs... (sniff!) I miss Ed's :("
