BATTLE OF THE BANDS: “The Long Black Veil”

I have a note to use this in a Battle, so here it is. Wikipedia tells us that it was written in 1959 by Danny Dill and Marijohn Wilkin and was originally recorded by Lefty Frizzell. Here are your contestants:

Dave Matthews Band

From 1999.

The Band

From 1983.

There are the contestants. Here are the instructions…

  1. Listen to the two songs.
  2. Decide which song you like the best.
  3. Vote for your favorite by leaving me a comment with your choice. If you feel like telling us why, feel free.
  4. Then, visit the other participants and vote in their Battles:

I’ll count the votes and announce the winner next Tuesday, February 22, at 12:00 noon Eastern Time, so be sure and get your vote to me by then.

The lines are now open. Good luck to the Dave Matthews Band and The Band!

  1. I like this song, but I am not fond of either of these versions. Still, it’s a contest and I suppose I should choose. Of the two, I like The Band better.


  2. John,

    I can’t say I remember today’s featured BOTB song title. Honestly, I’m not sure how things would play out any other day but this morning, The Band sound does it for me. It could be this horrible headache coloring my decision making as I found Dave Mathews Band recording a bit irritating to listen to because of my splitting head which probably isn’t being fair.

    Good battle! When you get a chance I hope you’ll stop by to cast your vote in the Dream Lover BOTB Showdown on CAAC, my friend!
