Her Bright Smile Haunts Me Still has been a fave song of mine for a long time, ever since hearing Cordelia’s Dad’s storming version (from their self titled 1990 album, well worth checking out imo), my version sounds nothing like that one though, but I enjoyed learning it a lot.
Samantha Crain : Joey (COVER VERSION)
My version of Samantha Crain’s excellent song ‘Joey’ off her 2020 album ‘A Small Death’ – if you haven’t done so already, please check out her version on YouTube (the studio version) which is naturally far better than mine, especially the vocals and the arrangement. The song is well above my vocal range, but I had to give it a try anyway, I love it.
Woody Guthrie did it in the 1940’s, Bob Dylan in the ’60’s, Steve Earle has been doing it since the 1980’s and in 2022 we have Richard Inman.
