From his just released new album (his first in a decade) Bidin' My Time, please enjoy the incredibly great Chris Hillman and his remake of The Byrds' "Bells of Rhymney."
Hillman is one of my genuine all-time musical heroes, but I'll have more to say about that later on in the week.
In the meantime, this is just fricking gorgeous.
In case you've forgotten, here's what it sounded like on The Byrds' debut album from 1965, back when the world and I were young.
I'm kind of a purist on this sort of thing, so I never thought I'd say this, but I like both of these versions pretty much equally.
