Indietracks release a compilation album of acts appearing at the festival every year and this year’s has just been released. For a couple of quid you can have an amazing 56 track album (!!) which not only includes Dean Wareham’s splendid Everly Brothers cover Living Too Close to the Ground, but in amongst the shedload of other brilliant music you’ll find Joann Gruesome’s also splendid cover of Galaxie 500′s Tugboat. Now how is that not amazing value.
I’m taking a guess that Dean Wareham most likely came to Time by Nancy Sinatra’s version… I know I did. All my (admittedly rather slack) research has revealed that Time songwriter Michael Merchant wrote Time. And that’s about it. A few folk recorded in 1966, including…
Time – Nancy Sinatra (1966)
Time – Cher (1966)
Time – Carol Deene (1967)
Time – Glen Campbell (1969)
Dean Wareham’s side project Cagney and Lacee recorded the sonmg for a single on Terry Tolkin’s No.6 Records in 1995
