because it's Tuesday - week of June 20

I have always loved songs that tell a story.  This is probably because I grew up in the 1970's listening to a lot of country music.  Townes Van Zandt's "Pancho and Lefty" has been covered by many many musicians over the years.  I had a lot of fun listening to different versions of it and was struck by how beautiful Frank Turner's version is.  His voice is really lovely with just a little bit of grit around the edges, sort of perfect for "Pancho and Lefty" I think.

Do you agree? Give it a listen and let me know xo
