Covers on Wednesday! Okay, let’s make this quick, I don’t have time to blog today – the new iPhone is announced this morning and I have to hit up a live stream from some tech blog. No really, I probably will be. Really.
Well, to keep it musically focused/folkused how about some Dolly Parton and The Greatful Dead covers? Done.
Fort Frances have been doing a fantastic job with their “As Told By…” series and we have a new chapter with the track Ripple originally by The Greatful Dead. I can honestly say that I am not the most familiar with TGD and am nowhere near being a “dead-head” but maybe I need to give that another shot after hearing this…they are folky right? Hey, you guys saw their great video cover of ‘Summertime’ right?
Now, let’s be clear – Dolly Parton is a bit of an icon in the music industry and let us also be clear that this is not a Whitney Houston song. Just as Whitney, Howth is just borrowing the song I Will Always Love You for a bit, the song will forever be Ms. Parton’s. But damn if Howth doesn’t do some good work with it. Also don’t forget to grab their free 3 track EP ‘Secret Goldmine’ via Bandcamp.
Now, to the tech blogs I go…..
