The Liverpool Sessions is the acclaimed debut EP release of singer-songwriter Tracy Bonham, released in 1995.[3][4] The Boston Phoenix noted its "stylistic stretches—a torch ballad, psychedelia, a kid's song, hardcore",[5] featuring "the rough-hewn pop gem 'Dandelion', the thrashy, new-wavish '18 Heads Roll By', and the punkish rant 'I'm Not a Waif'."[6] In a Hits Magazine interview, Bonham herself called it "a good record [... but] a rush job and a little immature." [7]
