Rhapsody Original (EP, Exclusive)
by Ted Leo
Released: Oct 2007
Label: Touch And Go Records
This is the swan song for Ted Leo's long-running rhythm section, the Pharmacists; bassist Dave Learner left the band shortly after the session. The quartet of songs features one from each of Leo's four LPs between 2001's The Tyranny Of Distance and 2007's Living With The Living. Like any of the band's hundreds of live sessions along the way, it bristles with the singer's abundant energy, squalls of electric guitar and the band's rock solid recital.
