Label: Capitol Records
Two nearly identical versions of "Days of Elaine" head up the Decemberists' second EP in the Always The Bridesmaid series (the only difference is the edit, which allows the second one to feature a more extended jam). Meloy-as-Elaine sings about how "those were the days," and the sentiment is apt for the band's straightforward, '60s-pop gait, which does away with the fancy military band flourish for simple Rickenbacker guitar riffs and a brisk backbeat. "I'm Sticking With You" -- a tune where Meloy trades vocals with Jenny Conlee -- is a coy drama club duet.
