heavenly

October 18, 2010

I’d never heard this version of Dylan’s “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” until recently when I was doing a little digging to find some good international cover tunes to play on the show. I grew up listening to Dolly Parton (“Coat of Many Colors” is still a favorite) but it never really occurred to me to think of her as soulful.  Until now.

This is kind of a goofy, psychedelic video – but listen. Just listen.
