As my friend Jan will tell you I am a big fan of female vocalists, especially of the rootsy variety.
One of whom I was never a fan was Iris Dement, there was something about her voice that I just couldn't like, BUT the girl could write.
I was listening to the Translatlantic Sessions on BBC 4 when this track started.
I still am not a fan of her voice but just LISTEN to the lyrics.
Another great lyricist was Kate Wolf, I can't find her singing this but Nanci and Emmy Lou make a nice subsitute
Possibly my fave song of ALL time
and as its Valentine's day ! As Jan can testify Julia can sing this note perfect live.
