Camper Van Beethoven
Key Lime Pie 2LP
Camper Van Beethoven signed with Virgin Records in 1988 and delivered a record that defied those who thought the band might “sell out.” The band returned the following year with what most deem their masterpiece—Key Lime Pie.
Omnivore Recordings is excited to reissue Camper Van Beethoven’s Virgin Records output, including 1989’s classic, Key Lime Pie.
Once again produced by Dennis Herring (Elvis Costello, Counting Crows), Key Lime Pie continued the journey into the world of CVB, but with higher production value and sound than had been heard before. From a track about Jack Ruby to a cover of Status Quo’s “Pictures Of Matchstick Men”, Key Lime Pie was a slice above the rest and a fitting dessert for the 1980s.
Key Lime Pie is both sweet and tart, but Key Lime Pie is an essential component to any musical meal. Includes new liner notes and photos.
