Bonny Light Horseman's cover of the Elliott Smith song. Eric D. Johnson shared the following statement about the trio’s “Clementine”: Bonny Light Horseman is made up of 100% Elliott Smith mega-fans, so when our friend Rob from Kill Rock Stars asked us to do this it seemed pretty obvious. We each recorded our parts in three separate states but, like most of Elliott’s songs, this tune has such intimacy and warmth that it felt like we were all in the same room on a rainy night. It felt right for this band because as Josh points out – it might be the only ES song that has elements of a traditional song – ‘Oh my darlin’ Clementine…’ and it uses that great floppy open guitar tuning. Viva Elliott forever. https://www.jambase.com/article/bonny-light-horseman-elliott-smith-cover-clementine

MLK Song
by Mavis Staples
(9 plays) | (0 fans)

This tribute to Martin Luther King was written by Livin' on a High Note producer M. Ward. The recording of it was an emotional experience for Mavis Staples. She recalled to Uncut: "I got so wrapped up in that I almost didn't finish it. The first time I choked up and started to cry, as I could see Dr. Martin Luther King as I was singing. It just hit me and I almost broke down. But I held it together and I finished, and then I broke down: you have to take your heart into the studio." https://www.songfacts.com/facts/mavis-staples/mlk-song
