Dag With Shawn was recorded on Halloween Day 1985 and features the original line-up of the band with Shawn Brown on vocals. Initially, songs from this session were to be released as a four-song 7″ on Dischord, but shortly after the recording Shawn left Dag Nasty and the tape was shelved. In early 1986 the band re-recorded the entire album with new vocalist Dave Smalley and released it as Can I Say.
This recording, taken from restored master tapes, was mastered at Chicago Mastering Service. The 12″ LP features a free MP3 download.
