    Three great singers...one sounds like it's personal.

    Randy Weeks from The Lonesome Strangers wrote this tune.

    I have had a crush on Alison forever. And I really like her brother Viktor. Good bass player.

    I would ditch my fiance tomorrow and marry Alison Krauss in a heartbeat.

    (Don't worry, she doesn't know about this forum.)

    Luckily we don't have to pick just one!

    But, yeah, Lu

    funny how the same song can be so different. The Al & Robert version is more polished. The Lucinda version is more "rough" . Her voice and the resonators resonates......

    That's an almost unfair comp... both great but Lu's version is on fire.

    Can't stand Lucinda Williams' "always on eleven" style, too showy for me.
    The Krauss/Plant was quite nice.

    Bob & Al’s cut has a touch of rockabilly to it whereas Lu’s is more rootsy. I love Bob & Al’s voices - especially Al’s (cuz man she truly sings like an angel), but I lean toward roots music - and Lu’s voice makes me wanna comb my hair and buy her a drink.

    I like both of them.

    This song is so good it's hard to f it up. I listened to a bunch of YouTube's of it...none of them sucked.

    Kinda like Fly Me To The Moon...can't find a clunker. :D

    T-Bone Burnett's production is always so cool but that lo-fi feel he's always striving for is already there in the Lucinda Williams version, only hers was effortless. Lucinda all the way.

    I'd heard both before. Wife got to hear both on a road trip last weekend. She and I agree that we prefer Bob & Al, but Lu is always awesome.
