If I Were A Carpenter

If you buy this album for any reason - buy it for Sonic Youth's cover of 'Superstar' - this is a rock classic - the original pales into insignificance in comparison. Johnette Napolitano's cover of 'Hurting Each Other' comes a very close second - very close! Great Album - highly recommended!!!!!

Listened to this a lot when it was first released.

Agree with the other reviewer. Sonic Youth's cover is perhaps one of the defining moments of their career. Absolutely stands alone as an incredible piece of music without this album, without the original.

The rest of the record is still pretty good though - lots of good examples of the 'alternative/alt-rock' scene back in the early '90's.
The Redd Kross tune was the big single from the album (Superstar being the B-side) and AMC, Cracker, Shonen Knife and Grant Lee Buffalo all add good, quirky covers.

It's recommended.
