Steve Earle “The Randall Knife” – Listen

We’ve mentioned the new Steve Earle tribute album to Guy Clark a fair bit on the site recently, and there’s another offering now online from it, a terrific version of one of Guy Clark’s most personal songs, ‘The Randall Knife.’‘ which described the complicated relationship between a father and son. The song was originally featured on 1995’s ‘Dublin Blues’ which includes a spoken-word delivery. Earle does the same through his version , which RS describes as “a little gruffer and more ominous than Clark’s original, which unfolded like a campfire story.” The album comes out at the end of this month.
