A bit of Warren Zevon



Those who have been around for a while know my admiration for the work of Warren Zevon. I really miss him and thought I'd post some of his music:

I love the guitar in this one:

Carmelita

Underrated:

Vera Cruz

The song I play in my car when I drive to court for a jury trial:

Lawyers, Guns and Money

From his last appearance on David Letterman. Remember to "enjoy every sandwich":

Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner

We all have this problem:

My Shit's fricked Up

A fitting good-bye:

Keep Me In Your Heart

My Favorite:

Desperados Under the Eaves

He had so many others. R.I.P., WZ

I hate that version -- LR cannot sing rockers, she has no sense of humor, and I don't know if a female should sing it anyway

I hated the song until I heard WZ's original

So, I guess you hate her version of "Carmelita".

Her Carmelita is not as bad as her PPPM. IMHO with a handful of exceptions ("Long Long Time") LR's best work were her Songbook albums with Nelson Riddle et al

Frankly I don't care much for the '70s El Lay school aside from WZ

Agree. I had the "What's New" album and she did a great version of "Someone To Watch Over Me".

He was also part of an extremely underrated supergroup - Hindu Love Gods

Raspberry Beret

WZ + 3/4 REM = pretty close to perfection

The Motorcycle Abilene - "(You Used To) Ride So High" -- Recorded in 1966, unissued until 2003

ETA: Just discovered this version:

Warren Zevon - "I Used To Ride So High" -- Unissued until 2007; a Zevon fan site says it was probably recorded in the 1970s
