Subject: RE: Origin: Long Black Veil
This is a song that I really like but I don't think that any of the above versions do it justice, in fact I couldn't listen to any of them all through. Mitchell most unsuited to do it with Cash and as for the Dave Matthews sung with absolutely no feeling and masses of over produced sound behind him. I can say in all honesty that I have heard it sung with more sincerity and feeling by an ex-pat American dobro player who plays in sessions in London.
Are there any commercially recorded versions out there that really are worth hearing?
