29) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Yo La Tengo-'Painful' (Vinyl Version)
Since Yo La Tengo are playing Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin over this weekend, I decided to play one of my favorites from their catalog that we haven't played. There are a ton of their albums we still haven't played, but this one is a Matador Records classic. The two different versions of "Big Day Coming" and their cover song of The Only Ones classic "The Whole of the Law" are worth the admission, but that is not to say the rest of the album isn't as good. This is where Yo La Tengo started to hit their stride. "Let's wake up the neighbors, let's turn up our amps." - Michael MFL
