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.

Ripple - A Story by The Grateful Dead - As Told by Fort Frances

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?

Not any sort of artwork or of the band (clearly) but it is from the Howth Facebook page and it is pretty sweet…

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.
