First Release Date: March 1994

A solo debut album by John Frusciante. This album was recorded between two time periods; the first half, Niandra Lades, was recorded before Frusciante left the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 1992; during the recording of Blood Sugar Sex Magik. The second half, Usually Just a T-Shirt, was recorded while the band was on tour in the months leading up to Frusciante's departure.

Niandra Lades and Usually Just a T-Shirt sold poorly upon its release in 1994, and was taken off the market, only to be re-released in 1999. The reason for this was because it estimated to have sold only 45,000 copies when Frusciante ordered it out of print in 1998—when Frusciante rehabilitated and rejoined the Chili Peppers. His 1997 follow-up Smile From the Streets You Hold was also withdrawn from the market at the same time.

If anyone wants to sell me this for a price that isn't hilariously ridiculous, get with me.

Sound is fine on these LPs... Superior Viaduct does a great job. Too bad they issued this so-so limited (1000ex) red+7" "speculator" edition !

Very pleasant and silent pressing. The packaging is another strong point on this release. Definitely a must-have for any JF fan. Sounds brill!

I did like this better than the TROWFTD vinyl edition. Although the album itself was recorded in low fidelity and it gains nothing in terms of quality being pressed on vinyl, I would still buy this edition (despite I already own a cd copy) because this is simply beautiful!
