Harry Dean Stanton With The Cheap Dates - October 1993

From Jamie James’ liner notes to Harry Dean Stanton With the Cheap Dates’ October 1993: “Together, Harry and I had been doing some dates around Los Angeles as a duo and I remember suggesting to Harry to have Slim Jim Phantom (Stray Cats) come over and play drums with us. In doing so, he brought along Jeff ‘Skunk’ Baxter (The Doobie Brothers) to play pedal steel, which then led to Slim and I asking Tony Sales (Iggy Pop, David Bowie, Todd Rundgren) to play bass, and that’s how we became The Cheap Dates.” October 1993 documents that collaboration with four studio tracks, and five cut live at The Troubadour.
