Okkervil River--Overboard & Down

Named for and featuring an excellent cover of one of my favorite songs off the focus of my last post, Big Star's Third/Sister Lovers, this tour EP is just one of countless records that were influenced by that Big Star Record. Just a few minutes on YouTube will reveal covers of Sister Lovers songs by Bat for Lashes, Elliott Smith, This Mortal Coil, Mike Mills, Jody Stephens, Evan Dando, Yo La Tengo and a bunch more. This Okkervil River cover is one of my favorites and the rest of the EP is pretty amazing as well.
