Oooh I want this. Truth be told, Evan Dando is a better songwriter than Paul Westerberg (shudder, how dare I say so — well, I will dare).

As expected, Rhino is releasing a remastered and expanded version of the Lemonheads’ 1992 album “It’s a Shame About Ray” on March 25.

The double-disc set includes a bonus DVD, “Two Weeks In Australia,” containing live performances and music videos from the ’90s alt-rock band. The film compilation was formerly released in 1993 on VHS.

The audio collection features previously unreleased demo versions of some songs, plus the b-side “Shaky Ground” — 23 songs total, up from the original 13 tracks.

Lemonheads frontman Evan Dando recently told Billboard he is hoping to hit the studio this month, with an eye on a spring album release for Vagrant.

Here is the track list for “It’s a Shame About Ray”:

“Rockin Stroll”
“Confetti”
“It’s A Shame About Ray”
“Rudderless”
“My Drug Buddy”
“The Turnpike Down”
