The Deep Dark Woods cover The Mississippi Sheiks [new mp3]

by oz on December 3, 2009

The Deep Dark Woods can do no wrong. After hearing their new tracks in our live session, I eagerly anticipate any new material they put out. The band sent us an email today with an mp3 attachment for a cover recorded in-studio during the sessions for Winter Hours.

For those unfamiliar with The Mississippi Sheiks, the were pioneers of the Country-Blues sound that we all know and love today. The Deep Dark Woods would’ve done them proud with this version of “Sweet Maggie.”

If you don’t own them already, I’d recommend buying all of their albums.

The Deep Dark Woods – Sweet Maggie

New tracks recorded in our live session:

The Deep Dark Woods – The Banks Of The Leopold Canal

The Deep Dark Woods – Ballad Of Frank Dupree

Well, that my friend is awesome.

This is good, but still not anywhere close to Nathan James and Ben Hernandez’s version.

Good, kept bothering me on where the songs came from until it hit me… Dave Van Ronk.
