My first foray into the Ween catalog. Maybe not the best choice but it is still a fun album. Features a terrific song about a relationship breaking up.Hit the fuckin' road and piss up a rope. I'd say that's much better than Lyin' Eyes by the Eagles.

I like Painting The Town Brown live double CD aka WCDTOSALTDIT90S (Ween Can't Do That On Stage Anymore Like They Did In the 90s)...

Okay, I made that last bit up, but just like YCDTOSA, Painting The Town Brown is a great collection of live tracks from different shows/years 8)

I prefer Ween after they started touring with a full band, so for me any studio release starting with Chocolate and Cheese. Live in Chicago is a good too. Shinola Vol. 1 (sort of an odds and sods out takes album) is highly entertaining IMO. I even like La Cucaracha a lot even though some people think this was a let down.

I'd suggest The Mollusk for a Zappa fan.

Dean Ween Shares Audio Featuring The ‘Best Ween Show Of All-Time’

https://www.jambase.com/article/dean-ween-1990-best-ween-show-basel

Sep 28, 20181:58 pm PDTScott Bernstein
Early Ween 1991

Ween guitarist Mickey “Dean Ween” Melchiondo celebrated his birthday earlier this week by giving fans a present. Deaner uploaded audio of a Ween performance from 1990 he considers “the best Ween show of all-time.” The amazing recording is this week’s Full Show Friday selection and can be streamed below or downloaded via the Internet Archive.

https://archive.org/details/WeenLive1990BaselCh

Melciondo and Aaron “Gene Ween” Freeman toured Europe in support of their debut album GodWeenSatan: The Oneness from September 1990 through March 1991. “We lived in our tour manager’s apartment (Rene De Wever) in Eindhoven, Holland for 6 MONTHS and would jump off to other countries in his Renault Le Car with our tape deck and play gigs for gas and shelter, the three of us,” Mickey explained in a note accompanying the upload.


The audio is from a gig that took place in Basel, Switzerland. Deaner said no one was in attendance when the show started and only five people wound up checking out the concert. Ween mixed material from GodWeenSatan with songs that would be released on future albums as well as covers of “The Star-Spangled Banner” and Cat Stevens’ “Where Do The Children Play.” Read the full note from Melchiondo and then stream the audio:

ween—basel, ch — So……if you think you’re down with the brown….old school……this is the reality of Brown. We rolled into Basel Switzerland while promoting our first album by touring Europe from September of 1990 to March of 1991. We lived in our tour manager’s apartment (Rene De Wever) in Eindhoven, Holland for 6 MONTHS and would jump off to other countries in his Renault Le Car with our tape deck and play gigs for gas and shelter, the three of us. This is us in Basel, Switzerland in front of NO PEOPLE (except Rene), until the end of the gig when we had 5 people. Our sound guy was named Pidah, and this is the best Ween show of all time. On my birthday I GIVE IT TO YOU. I’ve submitted this for consideration as a live Ween record and no one has ever gotten back to me — so here it is…………..I humbly lay this at your feet………listen up and learn what Brown can do for you…..this is pure Ween……..
