Pine Time

As a treat for you today we have three fine versions of "Whispering Pines": the original by The Band and covers by the mighty Kelly Hogan and a woman called Doris. Don't be put off by her name, or the description of her as a "Swedish Petula Clark wannabe", Doris is really rather good.

"Whispering Pines" - The Band (from "The Band", 1969)

"Whispering Pines" - Doris (from "Did You Give The World Some Love Today, Baby", 1970)

"Whispering Pines" - Kelly Hogan & The Pine Valley Cosmonauts ("from "Beneath The Country Underdog", 2000)

Speaking of pines, here's good old Mike Murphey with a song from back in his pre-Martin days when he was good. I'm not so keen on the synth in this but it was the only version I could find:



And you can't really have a pine-themed post without this one:
