The fidelity that transcends life itself... Well now, I've been doing this song for years, all enthusiasticly like Ms.Baez, and I heard other versions much like it... Then I started hearing a creepy rendition done in song circles and open mics where the beat seemed all heavy and the singer miserable and twitching... And yes, sure enough, the awesome chieftons CD that I heard at a party had this miserable rendition on it by none other than Mick Jagger. I was so sad hearing good local musicians doing Mick's version... just seemed wrong...
