24 Carrots

The 1980 album, featuring Al and his band 'Shot In The Dark', that broke the US Top 30 and featured a number of Al classics that he plays to this day. the bonus tracks are three unreleased out takes; Candy Came Back, The Ringing Of Bells and Tonton Macoute

The original bonus tracks - the Studio Tracks from Indian Summer - have now been removed from this album. While that is annoying, the 'good news' is that all the original tracks from Indian Summer have been brought back together for a first-time ever on CD release! Probably the only good news of this "2007 Let's Scam The Fans" exercise.
