7" Egon Records E-03 1985

1. The River of Water (liquidx)
2. A House is Not a Motel (liquidx)

Notes: Track 2 is a cover song by Love.

Details from Matador's Annotated Discography:

A young Dave Schramm on lead guitar; a very young Dave Rick on the bass.

Dave Rick: I was 19. In fact I think I was the first Yo La Tengo member, even before the name. We did these two songs and 'Private Doberman' in the same session at Water Music in Hoboken.

YLTG: They're working on that building now where Water Music used to be. They're gutting it and making it taller.

Dave Rick: I wish someone would do that to me.
