I wish I knew where I found It’s Too Late To Stop Now. Was it at Ragin’? Or Amoeba in Berkeley? Or some record store in L.A.? All I know for sure was that it’s this weird compilation of demos, outtakes, radio performances and guys with tape recorders recording shows.
So a bootleg. Except that I seem to remember reading that it was a fan club record, or some other nudge nudge wink wink “hey, this is kinda legit.” I do know this: it’s probably the best Dream Syndicate album that isn’t The Days of Wine and Roses.
