the afghan whigs' "true love travels on a gravel road"

i’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic as of late, and for really no reason that i can think of. still, its been going on, and i’ve been rediscovering stuff that at one held a significant place in my heart/mind/whatever at one time. its not to say that they still dont, but time changes everything as we all understand. my favorite song, for many a year, was the afghan whigs version of the elvis presley’s “true love travels on a gravel road.” it was released via sub pop on their covers ep, uptown avondale, which is so worth tracking down.

  1. Agreed. I was always partial to “Beware,” probably because I grew up hearing the Al Green version so many times. But the whole EP is great, and a fitting farewell gift to Sub Pop before they jumped to the majors.

  2. wow, thanks for putting up all this great stuff, from old rolling stones to wilco to replacements. it gave me hours of pleasure while translating a book
