cover of the week: river

mp3: lex land - river mp3: joni mitchell - river it's coming on christmas they're cutting down trees they're putting up reindeer and singing songs of joy and peace joni mitchell is pretty hard to top, though plenty of people have tried. i'm not going to bother listing the dozens of artists who've covered "river" previously ... i haven't heard half of those versions anyway.

for anyone keeping a tally though, here's another name to add to the list. lex land 's cover is an internet exclusive, free christmas offering. and it's not half bad either.

my chief complaint is that all mitchell's messing around with "jingle bells" in the original seems to have been lost in land's guitar arrangement. .... 1:03 p.m. Thursday 18th December 2008 EST
