Dave Frishberg, piano and vocals
In front of a Los Angeles audience Frishberg examines his "pathological involvement" with sports heroes of yesteryear, including such favorites as Dodger Blue, Van Lingle Mungo, and Matty. The program includes a generous helping of new and never-recorded Frishberg songs, plus a handful of perennial "request" number, including My Attorney Bernie and Listen Here.
