It’s a classic John Prine song.
Oh, I knew I could easily look it up, even uninterested as I am.
I was responding to your comment “I’m confident we all know the original…,” wondering if there really is such a thing.
I know, right? Perhaps if the original had of been an iconic Beatles tune! Then there would actually have been a chance of everyone knowing the original.
There are some Beatles songs many would know, but I find twenty somethings and even older often do not know much if anything of the Beatles.
A good suggestion.
Talking of covers, what do you good people make of this? Nearly fifteen minutes of On the Road Again. The whole album is quite interesting.
Pleasantly surprised seeing as I clicked completely expecting some bizarre version of a Willie Nelson tune…
How dare you suggest I would post something like that!
Where’s that Greta emoji when you need it
The whole album is quite worth listening. Much easier to the ears than to categorise into a genre.
Crep - that album isn’t on Tidal or Spotify…
It’s on bandcamp if that’s of any use.
A free download no less:
Yup - I’m a regular Bandcamper… It’s the ONLY camping I do…
“People Who Died” by the Jim Carroll Band, covered by the Drive-By Truckers on “Alabama Ass Whuppin’.”
Wood Brothers do a few great covers…
Fixing a Hole (Beatles)
Midnight Rider (Allman Bros)
YES to that one
I love Bad Manners cover of Midnight Rider.
