Today, I’m posting the same song as performed by two completely different folk musicians. Listen to both versions, then place your vote in the comments area. The musician with the least votes will be hunted down and tortured beyond their wildest nightmares, as is customary in a FolkOff. Also, for the sake of this post, please pretend that Madeleine Peyroux can be considered a folk musician, as doing so was the only way I could use the term “FolkOff.”
Madeleine Peyroux - You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go (Play)
Mary Lou Lord - You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go (Play)
I’d like to give a shout-out to Mary Lou Lord for recording this entire album in an NYC subway station (you can hear a train at 3:32). I’d like to give a shout-out to Madeleine Peyroux for having such great, pissed-off-looking press photos.
