A cover you need

Ooooo, someone has posted one of my favorite covers, Lucinda Williams singing Positively Fourth Street. This site has a passel of covers by Lucinda, including the Dylan cover. She doesn't really do anything new with the song, except to bring her incredible voice to the story. Her voice is so rich with emotion, so it works with this Dylan classic.

Here is a favorite or two

Essence - a take on the classic sense of sex as a drug. Probably the best use of "fuck" in a country song as well. (OK, fine, David Allan Coe fans may disagree. If you do not mind utterly tasteless tunes, then compare against this song. NSFW!!!)

Car Wheels on the Gravel Road
Including Lucinda pitching the reissue.
