This week we go from one guitar playing Van Zandt to another. From “Badlands“, featuring the great Steven Van Zandt, to “Dead Flowers” by Townes Van Zandt.
‘Dead Flowers‘ is a cover of The Rolling Stones’ original, and the Van Zandt version appears on The Big Lebowski soundtrack. It’s also, like all the best Townes Van Zandt tracks, a live recording. Lots of potential links for next week, and then there’s the Van Zandt / Earle connection… Enjoy the track, and keep your eyes peeled to see where we end up next!
