Yo La Tengo Cover Arthur Lee

Yo La Tengo Cover Arthur Lee

Yo La Tengo have released a live session EP through iTunes this week.

The four tracks include a live favourite of their cover of Arthur Lee's 'Luci Baines' by his pre-Love band, The American Four.

The EP track-listing including the previously unreleased 'El Es Gay' is as follows:

1-El Es Gay
2-Pass the Hatchet, I Think I'm Goodkind
3-The Weakest Part
4-Luci Baines (Arthur Lee cover)

The live version of "Pass The Hatchet, I Think I'm Goodkind" is even more mind-blowing than the rendition on the album, with perfectly executed improvisation.

In contrast, 'The Weakest Part' is a stripped down version of the album track with piano and vocals by Georgia.

'I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass' - Yo La Tengo's latest album is available now.
