Just Like Me, Nowadays Clancy Just Wants To Be (Close To You)

The Greta Van Gerwig (C. Grisso/McCain), Sunday, 9 December 2018 22:38 (one year ago) link

The original's not a favourite, so that figures in. I actually really like their "Ticket to Ride" cover (same album--it was originally released as Offering, then re-released a few months later as Ticket to Ride when that became a minor hit).

No! Thanks--will order that for sure.

Clancy's such a weird-ass song to have inspired so many period covers (I think like three or four besides the Carpenters one).

Including--I could be wrong--the first Neil cover ever, Fever Tree's version of "Clancy" in 1968.

there's also joni mitchell's 1967 radio recording of "sugar mountain" which is cool

67? Wow that’s early. Maybe Neil “gave” it to her?

Maybe Fever Tree's was the first one to make it onto a record. If anyone knows one earlier (March 28, 1968), please post.

The Sylvester links don't work upthread, so just adding. It's *so* good
