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

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

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.

    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.
