#601 Jason Molina – Tower Song (Townes Van Zandt cover)

On Sunday mornings way back when, two friends of mine used to do a radio show called Under The Covers, delving deep into often obscure but always brilliant cover versions. Years later, Sunday mornings still seem a great time to enjoy covers, so here’s the much-missed Jason Molina tackling Townes Van Zandt’s ‘Tower Song’ during a Songs: Ohia gig back in 2002. This track was released along with his cover of ‘I’ll Be Here In The Morning’ for Record Store Day this year.
