Subject: RE: Casey's last ride - meaning?
I, too, concur with Tinker's assessment. I first heard this on my first Kristofferson LP, circa 1971. After reading Joe's enthusiastic praise for Emmylou's version, I just went to iTunes to give a listen. The woman can do a haunting rendering like few can. Sorry to say, for the first time I have to disagree with Joe. And though I love Emmylou too, I thought it the worst cover I've ever heard her do. Ouch.
