Jay Farrar & Benjamin Gibbard : Big Sur

A musical and lyrical marriage made in heaven, two of my favorite singer/songwriters singing a song heavily inspired/partly written by Jack Kerouac who is one of my most-beloved writers.

The original version of Big Sur can be found on the Jack Kerouac tribute CD/DVD project One Fast Move Or I’m Gone (Music From Kerouac’s Big Sur). Not sure if that is even available anymore (it was released in 2009), but it’s got a very special place both in my heart and book/CD/DVD shelf.
