A great EP with a hysterical cover parody of Herb Alpert's sexy Whipped Cream & Other Delights album cover, Clam Dip & Other Delights shows Soul Asylum growing up but not growing old. Starting with the huge thudding riff of "Just Plain Evil," this adds the triumphantly poppy "Chains" and the funky "Take It to the Root," which originally appeared on Time's Incinerator. Oddly, what was originally intended as a minor release turned out to be a major work in Soul Asylum's early career.
