Could be an interesting covers post, but it is newly released and a good version of the Bruce Springstein classic “Dancing In The Dark”. Ruth is an Australian born, current Canadian from Winnipeg (Go Jets Go) and a member of popular group, “The Wailin’ Jennys“. The song is lifted from her 2103 solo effort “These Wilder Things”. The folk/country rendition of this great song creates a completely different feel to the tune. I really enjoyed the vocals. Don’t forget to like my page on Facebook.
Great news, for me anyway. My car radio started working again. Good thing for a few reasons. First, I have music again (old car – no iPod plug) and second, I get to tap into my favourite music resource again. Today, we have the Wailin’ Jennys doing a cover of the great one’s (not Gretzky, Neil Young) song “Old Man” off his classic Harvest album. An outstanding cover with superb 3 part harmonies and some great guitaring. I am sure Neil would be proud. The group originated in Winnipeg and has a couple of incarnations over the years. They have performed since 2002 and have 4 albums to their credit. This song is off their 2004 album “40 days”.
