The baddest man in music.

(The subject, not the singers.)

















-- plus, one copy is the single rarest record in existence: Long Cleve Reed and
Little Harvey Hull's Original Stack O'Lee Blues -- only one exists.

A near-complete listings of versions can be found at http://jass.com/tom/next/stag.html.

Tori's cover of Rattlesnakes:


Lloyd's original:


I adore Tori. I can't stand her version of the song.

But then, I generally want it like Lucas does--- louder, faster, more energy.

or as Mad TV said:

faster, you're killing me!

Glee rocks!

Thanks for that!

Now... If I were a carpenter...

(no youtubes from the writer, Tim Hardin.)

Bobby Darin, who took it to 8.


Joan Baez. One of the loveliest female voices ever, In My Opinion.


The Cashes:
young


old


The Four Tops--- this is the first one, apparently...


Willie Nelson & Sheryl Crow


Robert Plant


Dropkick Murphys
(Tribute to Cash? <sigh>)


And the amazing, talented, beautiful and raw-jealousy-inspiring Alison Krauss (with Dwight Yoakum)



I have to admit there's something just lovely about Darin's voice that makes his version best to me.

(The song is known as either Where Did You Sleep Last Night? or In the Pines.)

The original is winner and still champeen.

I agree. And that's not because I heard it first.

I don't always agree that the original is best.

Case in point:

Led Zep, Black Dog.



Ronnie James Dio


Heart


Stacy Mitchart.
http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fusea ... d=33528514

(I used to have a youtube link to the whole song, but no not right now... I'll fix that later...

^^^ that's my favorite version EVER.
