So this is a new feature I am going to have from time to time, where I take classic songs, and compare them to the best covers that have been made from them. Who will reign supreme? Well, thats for you to decide. Check them both out and see which you prefer. Lets start this off with the song, “I See A Darkness”. It was originally recorded by one of the great American songwriters, Will Oldham (A.K.A. Bonnie Prince Billy) off of his seminal record of the same name, and in 2000 was covered by another one of the greats, Johnny Cash on his album “American III: Solitary Man”. Truly one of the most hauntingly beautiful and timeless tunes to be written in the last couple decades. Check it out.
