Sunday Morning Coming Down

Following on from last week’s Flying Burrito Brothers post, I fancied posting something by The Byrds this week.

One particular song, in fact.

But sadly, The Byrds original version isn’t a particularly Country version, and I know how it irks some folks if I dare to post a non-Country record here on a Sunday morning.

So instead, from his 1978 album Sleeper Wherever I Fall album, is a man with a name like a disgraced police officer:

Bobby Bare – I’ll Feel A Whole Lot Better

It may not be as great as the original, but it is unquestionably a Country record. Look, he’s even wearing a cowboy hat on the sleeve.

Or, maybe Juice Newton (whose name sounds like an instruction to squeeze Isaac until his pips pop) who covered it on her 1985 album Old Flames tickles your fancy this morning:

Juice Newton – Feel a Whole Lot Better

Which means that I can also justifiably post this, for the sake of comparison:

The Byrds – I’ll Feel a Whole Lot Better

I’ll save Dinosaur Jr.’s version for another day.

Right, now I can go back to bed, a slightly happier man.

More soon.

One thought on “Sunday Morning Coming Down”

  1. Listened to all three and I’ll put them in this order:
    Byrds
    Juice
    Bobby

    or maybe:
    Byrds
    Bobby
    Juice…. both runners up perfectly alright and versions that suit their genres but the original by far the best. Since starting my blog, I’ve discovered that the music I warm to most from the last 5 decades is that period between ’65 and ’69. I was born too late it seems.

    Yes Bobby Bare – Just makes me think of a big cuddly soft toy called Bobby Bear.
