Mary 2011 - January 21
This week, Allison Crowe has recorded three new originals: "Arthur" (not a Kinks kover); "By Any Terms"; and "Chasing the Rain". She's also recorded a cover.
"Cover Me" blog's Vincent Scarpa pens a lovely intro to premiere this song - saying: "Canadian singer-songwriter Allison Crowe drops great covers every time we turn around." Scarpa brands this newest interpretation by Allison "a lovely acoustic tribute to one of America’s most underrated songwriters. Patty Griffin would surely approve of this bare-bones delivery that exposes what are some of Griffin’s finest lyrics."
On her most recent Tidings
concert tour, Canadian musician Allison Crowe began
performing "Mary", a song written by the sublime
American singer-songwriter Patty Griffin. (She'd fallen in
love with the song when US cable television program "Sons
of Anarchy" featured it in its Season two episode "Balm".)
The New Year kicking in, Crowe pulled her piano stool over to the kitchen table, sat down and recorded this version simple and true.
