Thread Name: Your favorite version of Barbara Allen
Subject: Your favorite version of Barbara Allen
I have heard this song by many performers over the years, from famous singers and 'regional' talent. I was recently listening to the Emmy Lou Harris version from the movie Songcatcher, and would have to rate this as my favorite. How about yours? ( And any thoughts you may have about the narrative and/or evolution of the song are also welcome)
