Yo La Tengo

Today is the Day CD

This 6-song EP starts off with the "rock" version of the title track (original version on the Summer Sun album), followed by "Styles of the Times" and "Outsmartener". All three songs are outtakes from Summer Sun but feature a more "rocking" sound than the band felt was appropriate for the sensuous mood of the album. "Outsmartener" features free jazz bassist William Parker playing double reed horn. The EP also includes a gorgeous version of the Bert Jansch song "Needle Of Death" recorded in 1999 and sung by Georgia, as well as another 1999 unreleased song entitled "Dr. Crash", and an acoustic version of "Cherry Chapstick" performed just by Ira and James, and recorded by JJJ Radio in Melbourne Australia in 2000. A stunning companion piece to the recent Summer Sun, and one that stands in notable stylistic contrast to it.
