REAL COOL TIME: Live Feelies Covers, 1977-2012
If you’ve downloaded any of the Feelies shows I’ve posted in the past, you know that The Feelies are a magnificent cover band. Whether tackling songs by Patti Smith, Wire, R.E.M., The Stooges or, of course, The Velvet Underground, they manage to put their own stamp on anything they play. A Feelies cover song isn’t radically re-arranged, mind you — it’s just given that elemental Feelies feel. Some of these songs made it to the studio, while some of them ended up being live-only experiences. Over the years, I’ve gathered up what I think is a complete set of these tunes, and I’m sharing that with you now. Here’s the tracklisting: 
1. Egyptian Reggae (Modern Lovers)2. Everybody’s Got Something to Hide (Except for Me & My Monkey) (Beatles)3. Barstool Blues (Neil Young)4. She Said She Said (Beatles)5. Dancing Barefoot (Patti Smith)6. Outdoor Miner (Wire)7. White Light/White Heat (Velvet Underground)8. King’s Lead Hat (Eno)9. Little Red Book (Bacharach/David/Love)10. Take It As It Comes (Doors)11. Sedan Delivery (Neil Young)12. Carnival of Sorts (R.E.M.)13. Funtime (Iggy Pop)14. Paint It Black (Rolling Stones)15. See No Evil (Television)16. Velvet Medley (Velvet Underground)17. Seven Days (Bob Dylan18. Rocks Off (Rolling Stones)19. I Wanna Be Your Dog (Stooges) 20. Fun To Be Happy (Love Tractor)21. We’re Gonna Have A Real Good Time Together (Velvet Underground)22. Looking At You (MC5)23.There She Goes Again (Velvet Underground) 24. Don’t Cry No Tears (Neil Young) 25. Third Uncle (Eno)26. Head Held High (Velvet Underground)27. Mannequin (Wire)28.

Acknowledgments: Gotta say thanks to ILM-ers Marco and Erik for hooking me up with a few songs I didn’t have, as well as Janice for coming through at the last minute with “King’s Lead Hat.” Also thanks to the tapers who documented all of this — only one I know specifically is www.nyctaper.com, who has been lovingly recording the reunited Feelies in the last few years. More thanks to Massimo, who runs the excellent Feelies website, where I was able to research this stuff, thanks to the bootleg database there. And thanks to The Feelies for being so awesome! Go out and get those reissues, people!
