We've Got You Covered

The First Monday of 2009... The First Work Week... None of it sounds all that good as you roll out of bed and make your way into life. We don't do Covers posts anywhere near as often as I would like - but that's due to the fact that there is so much great new, original material out there. Still, there's no reason why we can't dip into the collection every now and again and pull out the very best. We've got you covered!

Come on back.



I dig Elliott's take on Dylan. I've also got it done by the Jamie Saft Trio with Mike Patton on vocals. Also tasty. :)

It's on the Jamie Saft Trio's 2006 album Trouble (all Dylan covers). Most are instrumental, but there's the aforementioned Patton take, plus one (or two) by Antony (who's guested with Bjork lately).
