Calexico - 'Alone Again Or' (2004)
'You know that I could be in love with almost everyone' and I just love Calexico and especially this great live cover of the Love classic, Alone again or. Isn't it great when one of your favourite bands covers one of your favourite songs. When the trumpets come in, I go all weak at the knees and have to lie down.
I have also included the the Love version and the Calexico original version at the end. What a treat you are in for!
Joey Burns and John Convertino were backing musicians with Giant Sand and they started a side project, Calexico which took off and surpassed Giant Sands. I just love their music, it could be described as Mexicano Alt Country. It is one of the few groups that all my family love together, no arguments when Calexico is on. A good starting point would be their album 'Feast of Wire'.
