Dave Jones Listen and you will see. Even the back story on how this track came into existence makes you feel lucky to hear it. It is already a favorite of mine from the first time I heard it. I have many covers of this song and I have to say this is different from my other favorite version when QotSA did a great job on it too. Her voice is amazing and compliments the string arangement so well. I close my eyes and picture myself sitting there listening to it as it is being played.

The mood of the song seems to fit the mood of the world right now. The 6-bar phrase is as off-kilter-but-natural as my brain has been feeling.

With Portland on COVID lockdown we couldn’t practice together ahead of time. (Didn’t want to risk anyone’s health/Nafisaria is pregnant, etc.) The first time we played together was at Jackpot! where we just did drums, bass, vocals and guitar, and Larry produced and gave arrangement suggestions. We were all wearing masks and in separate rooms for the whole session. I wrote the string arrangements that night based on what we came up with in the studio, and we did the strings and trumpet last.
