Note from sharer: This "show" was performed shortly after The Feelies split up and Glenn Mercer and Dave Weckerman were just starting to put together Wake Ooloo. Russel Gambino, a future member of Wake Ooloo, performs here with Glenn and Dave on a number of Feelies, Yung Wu and various cover songs. No WO songs here, perhaps because none was written yet.

Ocean Blue - Ventura, CA 1993 (pre-FM) + bonus

Ventura Theatre
Ventura, CA
Nov. 3, 1993

Pre-FM (sound quality Ex-; bonus tracks’ sound quality = VG to Ex-)

ROB SEZ: I didn't become a fan of the Ocean Blue until recently. But the great thing about being a music fan in the Internet age is, it's really never too late. Now that Ocean Blue have re-formed, recorded a new album and are touring again, the season for my fandom may have arrived. Is the re-formed band actually stronger now than before its initial split in the mid-1990s? Discuss. If you want to hear a recent live set with the band playing the debut & Cerulean albums in their entirety, please leave a comment.
