Springsteen Covered - Stolen Car
The fightback starts here! Emmylou Harris administers a total thrashing to Bruce with her version of Mansion on the Hill meaning that the scores are now The Boss 7 The Rest 3
We will stick with the ladies this week given that the victors so far have been Emmylou, Thea Gilmore and Tracey Thorn (well technically EBTG)
This week it is the turn of another country star Patty Griffin with her version of Stolen Car the last rack on side 3 of The River.
Absolutely no contest for me this week - Patty by a country mile.She could even win by a bigger margin than Emmylou
Proof, as if proof was needed, that The River would have made a better single album than a double one and also a reminder that I really should get round to acquiring some of Patty's records.
Others, of course may choose to disagree (but you would be wrong there)
