Cover Me Mondays: Handle With Care

Oh goodness! Chris and I got back less than an hour ago from North Carolina! We left at 2, but got a call around 3 that my grandmother's in the hospital with pneumonia or bronchitis (we'll know more tomorrow), so we made a detour and went through to see her on the way back. She's getting much better now, though. We're pretty tired, hot (we turned the A/C waaay up before we left), and missing our kitty- she's still at the boarder's until tomorrow. So this will be short. I'll try to get pictures from the weekend up tomorrow. But for now....

In the late 80's George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, and Bob Dylan formed the supergroup Traveling Wilburys.

Here's their original version of Handle With Care, from 1988 (see it on YT here, with better quality):

Here's the version I heard first, by Jenny Lewis, with the Watson Twins, Connor Oberst, M. Ward, and Ben Gibbard, from Jenny's album with the Watson Twins, Rabbit Fur Coat (my faaaaaavorite album ever!):

And here's a video of Jenny with Connor Oberst and Johnathan Rice doing the song live (the sound quality isn't great):

Now, I'm going to go watch this week's True Blood and try to relax.
