DYLAN COVERS # 128 Jim Reid(Jesus and Mary Chain Chain)/Cowboy Junkies - If You Gotta Go, Go Now


The Chain Gang

 
JIM REID - If You Gotta Go, Go Now (2006)

I came across this cover by Jim Reid of Jesus and Mary Chain  fame just by chance and it was a pleasant surprise, it is a very passabe take of  If You Gotta Go, Go Now and is taken from a 2006 single release of Dead Eng Kids and was included along with a demo of Dead End Kids.

I have not listened to the Jesus and Mary Chain for some time and this gave me the boost to get their great albums out and give them an airing.

The other take of the song is by the Cowboy Junkies and is an excellent version taken from their album Rarities, B-Sides and Slow, Sad Waltzes (1999)
.
I love the voice of Margo Timmins.

I'm not a huge fan of either of these artists, but I enjoyed both versions, particularly Jim Reid - good & raw!
