Dave Leslie of Baby Animals returns to join Eric in conversation to take a track by track look back at the 1993 Shaved and Dangerous, the follow-up to their wildly successful 1991 self-titled debut album. Recorded once again at Bearsville Studios in New York and at Compass Point in The Bahamas, the Shaved and Dangerous album was produced by Ed Stasium with a few songs produced by Extreme’s Nuno Bettencourt. This would mark the first time the band worked with Nuno, which we get into.
This album didn’t perform as well commercially, the band went through some struggles creatively with the label, and eventually on the road. Litigation followed and the band dissolved shortly thereafter. They’ve since returned with a new studio album, an unplugged album, a live album, a greatest hits, new tracks, tours and much more. But this marked the end of their initial run for all intents and purposes.
Having said that, it’s a FANTASTICALLY creative album with some truly stellar tracks and performances by all members of the band, which we get in to. If you’re familiar with Baby Animals, you’ll enjoy this in-depth discussion of this classic record. If you’re new to the band, hopefully you’ll listen and discover some truly incredible songs for an under-recognized band.
