A bit more straithforward last week with a resounding win of 6-1 by Townes over Guy Clark with their respective versions of To Live is to Fly. Only Alyson was rowing against the tide.
The overall score is now Townes 7 The Rest 1. Interestingly, it was nearly 6 -2 the week before as regular Friday night commenter Spence voted for Loretta by John Prine at 01.28 am on Saturday morning. As the post was scheduled for 08.00 and I was safely tucked up in bed it wasn't counted. So get in early.
It is beginning to get tricky now. I've still got plenty of songs by Townes that I don't have covers of and a few covers but not the Townes originals. I'll see how I get on but may put out a call for help shortly.
Courtesy of the compilation Poet - a tribute to Townes Van Zandt I've managed to come up with a cover of If I Needed You by Ray Benson of Asleep at the Wheel fame.
It's a no-brainer for me this week - it's Townes all day long.
Others,of course, may choose to differ
Next week's cover will be on Friday as opposed to Saturday
