Ralph Covert & The Bad Examples - The Two-Meter Sessions CD


Live and acoustic! The Bad Examples are a classic American pop band led by Ralph Covert that notched up three quick hits in Holland off their debut European release, Bad Is Beautiful. The premiere Continental tour's line-up was the same outfit that was captured in concert on Cheap Beer Night: leader Ralph Covert, guitarist John Duich (Legendary Blues Band, Lynne Jordan), Pickles Piekarski (John Prine's Famous Potatoes), and founding drummer Terry Wathen.

While on tour with Golden Earring, the Examples were asked to perform on Jan Douwe Kroeske's long-running "Two-Meter Sessions," a Radio VARA show similar in stature and nature to BBC DJ John Peel's programme. On January 9, 1992, playing together acoustically for the very first time (on rented instruments, no less), the band's three-song set was quickly expanded to 11. Included is the band's signature song, "Not Dead Yet." Two Covert originals made their disc debut here: "Battle Hymn of the Repugnant," and "The Master Thief Has Been Murdered." Duich covers Robert Johnson's "Kind-Hearted Woman."

Lengthy (and hilarious) liner notes penned by Covert tell the story of that magical first tour. Since then, Covert has logged seven more trans-Atlantic tours, with the band and solo. After you've read the stories behind the recording you'll find yourself returning to the music often. The lengthy booklet also contains numerous photos from that tour.
