Sometimes All You Need



Is a bit of Nancy and Lee.

I have been reading Fuel Injected Dreams again, it's a kind of biannual ritual and during this time I normally listen to nothing but 60s girl groups and but also I usually reach for other things from that era and Nancy And Lee are always in there.

I once saw Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan cover this at a gig a couple of days after the death of Lee Hazelwood and it was just as good as it sounds. Apparently their was a version of Campbell and Lanegan's second album Sunday at Devil Dirt that came with a free live cd which had them doing the song but I have never been able to get my hands on a copy.

I love a lot of Lee and a bit of Nancy. This song is awesome and there many of versions of this song but the original was never beaten. Years ago German industrial punks Eins├╝rtzende Neubauten made a cover that is in it's way unique.

I have to go for the book. Thanks Drew.

Heads up that Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown show on CNN was just in Seattle. Mark Lanegan was one of his guests. Worth a watch. As for Lee and Nancy, they will always get everything aligned again... for a few minutes, anyway. What a song.
