I could listen to this very early gem by Tyvek —one of Michigan's finest musical ensembles of all time— "Mary Ellen Claims," far more than five times in a row. Here we have the original single version off their first release (I believe — don't effigize me if I'm wrong, TermBo nerds!) plus four live takes from around the world, with different lineups.

Don't say I never gave you nothing. Also, this band has always been great, and continues to be great whenever they remember they're a band and get together and play or record.
So much gratitude to X! and M'Lady's records for releasing this beautiful thing in the first and second places.
