BATTLE OF THE BANDS: “The Long Black Veil,” Redux

Yeah, I know I just did "The Long Black Veil" two weeks ago, but I got a better idea from Paula of a battle using the song: A father-daughter battle between Johnny Cash and his daughter Roseanne, both of whom did the song.

Johnny Cash

Roseanne Cash

You know what to do by now, right?

  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:

Next Tuesday, March 8, at 12:00 PM Eastern, I’ll count the votes and announce the winner. We had a good turnout for the last couple of battles, and if we had an even bigger turnout this time, I’d be ecstatic.

The lines are now open. Good luck to Johnny and Roseanne!

  1. Ahh, yes, that typically sleepy, boring bomp!-bomp!-bomp! Johnny Cash sound. The man in black with a single sound!

    I don’t think this song really works with a female vocalist, but please give my vote to ROSEANNE if for no reason other than the fact that she’s not vastly-overrated Johnny.

  2. Generally speaking I prefer the vocals and style of Rosanne, but for this song I prefer Daddy’s version.

    A vote for Johnny Cash–just seemed more appropriate for him to be singing..

  3. I know both versions very well, and I knew who I’d vote for, but I did listen. I would put Johnny’s version over everyone else, except his daughter. Rosanne Cash for the win!

  4. John,

    I thought I knew right off who I would go with but was proven wrong and as much as I love Johnny Cash’s version, I slightly liked Johnny’s daughter’s cover better. Please give my vote to ROSEANNE CASH.

    Whenever you get a moment, perhaps you’d care to hop over to cast your vote in my current BOTB. Have a good day, my friend!
