Comment:

This mix was a bit challenging 'cause I figured that the recipient, a co-worker of my mom's, wouldn't take kindly to too many punk or techno covers. Lots of sixties stuff here, though.

The Husker Du track is one of my all-time fave covers (right up there with their cover of the Mary Tyler Moore Show theme).
