This should need no introduction around these parts.  Plain and simple, two of the heavyweights of the Seattle “folk” scene.  Damien Jurado covering the J. Tillman Classic “When I Light Your Darkened Door”.

The song was recorded live from the Doug Fir Lounge as part of the 2007 Musicfest Northwest event.  I also apologize as I don’t remember how I have it, just that we had it at Yer Bird Records because the original Tillman track is from our label released album ‘Cancer and Delirium’…so somebody sent it to us!  Now you can listen to it in all it’s glory.

Enjoy one of the best tracks you could ask for on a spring Sunday morning…

    Love Jurado & love Tillman, but I feel like there are about 50 Tillman songs I’d rather see Jurado cover. “When I Light Your Darkened Door,” like almost every Tillman song, is good, but it’s probably my least-favorite song on that album.

    By the way, Jurado posted this link to his Facebook page. Hopefully, some Jurado fans will be introduced to the excellence of the Slowcoustic blog this way.
