Recently I have been frequently drawn back to that version of "The Way It Will Be". Mesmerising.
I got to see Welch and Rawlings a couple times at the Station Inn. I was really enjoying them for a while, the circles I was frequenting focused on coffeehouse singer-songwriter music, the genre what branched from Emmy Lou. Nice seeing Harford again.
the way it will be ... wasn't sure if that wasn't the recorded version somehow. But it's done live ... wow.
These two are always ‘wow’
We used to have a Tuesday night jam (some years ago) and the "last song" was always this one... It helped that we were in red-clay country (North Alabama).
I eventually figured out a clawhammer banjo break for it that wasn't bad. We played a few of their songs. "Look at Miss Ohio", "Caleb Meyer", etc. Good stuff!
Incredible talent turned loose .
This is one of my favorites. the earlier recording had sort of martial snare drum which I didn't like near as much as this version, or their live versions, for that matter. Talented duo; great blend in the vocals.
funny old world; Ms. Welch was apparently born in New York City, adopted, moved to LA at an early age. Played bass in goth band and drums in a "psychedelic surf band" [California...] but a college roomate played a Ralph Stanley record for her and she found her calling. I'm glad she did.
What I love about "The Way It Will Be" is that it is not virtuoso music; also, you can look up and read the lyrics and they won't tell you much all by themselves. But you listen to the tune and you know what they mean.
That's why there is song.
That performance of that song makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. Absolutely perfect.
I stumbled across this about a year ago. Absolutely love this version, along with that performance of Revelator. Those two are the real deal. Her voice, his playing, magic.
They are simply incredible together.
I am unable to resist clicking on anything that says Welch n Rawlings in the title, yet this is the first time for a live The Way it Will Be. Thanks for posting.
I like the way Dave puts the second voice Below the lead voice, instead of the usual way of doing harmony.
And he gets so much sound out of that little parlour guitar.
I saw 'em open for "The Buffalo Springfield" in Oakland at the Fox, in 2011. They stood well, indeed.
They also have a sense of humor. Listen to Dave's telecaster licks-tasty like everything else he does.
Miranda Lambert originally cut this but Gillian and Dave's demo sounds so much better.
There's more music and less production if you know what I mean.
