BILLIE JEAN AT BILLY REID

At the Billy Reid Shindig in Florence, Alabama at the beginning of June, when summer freedom was just barely mine, hundreds of sweaty folks packed into the top floor of the headquarters location on Main Street in the sleepy little town. The Civil Wars serenaded us as we sipped cold brews and stood still, waiting for breezes. This tune was one of my favorites: cover cleverness.
