Homegrown Memories

Here is a cover of “16 Tons” played by Father Hennepin with Al Sparhawk adding in a great Marc Ribot-style guitar solo. 

16 Tons (mp3)

Tim Nelson also makes a guest appearance, banging on what I think was a piece of Al’s washing machine.  The song was from a demo tape recorded shortly after Homegrown II, where Al joined Father Hennepin on stage for some Father Hennepin classics as well as a couple of countrified Low songs. 

Speaking of old Father Hennepin recordings… does anyone have a live recording of their version of “Waitress in the Sky”?

Which version? We did a straight cover at first, then effed it up and played a "spooky" version in A minor that was waay cooler, problem is, no one can remember how we did it.
