Cowboy Junkies: Sweet Jane


One of many radically different versions by the Junks of the Lou Reed classic, the first of which appeared on their 1988 album The Trinity Session. This one starts with a Velvets-style drone before Margo Timmins wanders on with her mug of tea. The accordion (yes, really) is terrific. In fact the whole thing is inspired, doing full justice to one of my favourite songs of all time.
