The title track of this CD EP by Ralph Covert
was recorded live on WGN Radio
of Chicago in the Spring of 1994. The song, detailing a relationship with a slowly dying friend, became a heavy request item. It was written and performed by Ralph Covert, leader of Chicago's top pop-rock band, The Bad Examples. Steve Gerlach
, at that time The Bad Examples' lead guitarist, accompanies Covert.
In addition to "Adam McCarthy" there was a previously-unreleased acoustic band version of the Bad Examples favorite, "Promises In The Dark," recorded live for Dutch Radio VARA on their 1992 European tour. It has since been released on "The 2-Meter Sessions." The original version is on the "Bad Is Beautiful" album. Two tracks from Covert's solo project, Eat At Godot's, both of which received album radio play, are included.
