Track 5 is an old Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers song called "I Want You to Be My Girl", Georgia-ized to "I Want You to Be My Boy."

Isn't Baskets of Love actually Frenzy (The Fugs)?

Robert Manfred

I never got those crazy Yo La Tengo kids. all their records sound like poor versions of someone else's....
Their best record is Facebook, it's all covers!
I think they're like a Yank version of Scotland's The Pastels, is that fair?
Always promising more, but ultimately not very satisfying musically.


Hmmm, I suppose that's fair enough Robert Manfred - I say as a fan of both bands. I might put it a different way: unquestionably YLT wear their influences boldly- their obsessive music-fandom is a pretty defining characteristic of their band. As for promising more than they give, I'd also qualify that as a good thing. Keeps the complacency away, no? And ultimately I do find them satisfying; they do play plenty of games w/ nods and references for the music geeks among us to point at and feel self-satisfied in our geekiness, but more importantly they successfully assimilate everything into a whole identity that's honest, human, and way beyond pastiche.

Their story is told elsewhere, and often with entertaining attempts at figuring out the true identities of these masked pottymouths.
