This is brilliant - One of my most favourite and mmost brilliant of his holiness the Bob’s songs done with some rather special magic - probably Emily Frantz’s voice please enjoy
I hope you agree
Saw Bragg at the Brook in the week and he played this cover of Anais Mitchell’s lament at the selfishness and lack of compassion all over the world.
The cover I want to post isn’t on YouTube. You guys will have to imagine it.
It’s really nothing like the original.
I like it
You’ve always had such catholic taste.
I preferred the original.
God that was fucking awful.
Nobody can beat Gram Parsons & The Burritos version.
Did you not realise you can like both without denigrating either? I’ve never understood that. Most cover a song because they love the original… respect their good taste.
Really??? I never thought that, I only thought you could like one version of any song.
I like the stones version, although wether that’s the original is a debatable point. Richards gave The Flying Burritos the song which was released a year before The Stones did it. Leon Russell actually did a blue grass version that was pretty good. I like those 3 versions, but Parsons wins it for me. Still doesn’t change my opinion of the version posted, it’s shocking. Shit.
…but because you don’t like it doesn’t actually make it shit. It’s simply not performed the way you like it, it’s not for you…that should be enough. The fact that I prefer the Burrito’s version doesn’t mean I think Sam Bean’s version is shit…to me it clearly isn’t. He clearly loves the song too.
