david coverversion: johnny cash vs. the brakes (brakesbrakesbrakes)

so while i wait to arrive at a record store that carries brakesbrakesbrakes (the brakes in the uk) newest album, 'the beatific visions', which was released last november, i'm still spinning 'give blood'. on their first album (of which a d.c. was done on the jesus and mary chain song they covered sometime previous) they also give us a version of the country standard 'jackson'. the most popular version was a grammy winning take released by johnny cash on one of his live releases 'at folsom prison', with june carter singing along with the man in black. the brakes' version has leila moss, singer for the uk based blues-rock band the duke spirit, singing june's parts. also added for shits and giggles is lee hazelwood and nancy sinatra's 1968 take on the loss of fire in our romance song, as i just remembered i had that disc as well.
