FromHolz with Lovett

Some folks might be familiar with Lyle Lovett’s song Bears (Step Inside This House – 1998). He was covering the original version by another Texas boy – Steven Fromholz who recorded it way back in ’76 on his aptly named Rumor in My Own Time LP.

I like the Fromholz version a lot – it has a good mix of instruments. Beneath it is another cover maybe closer to the Lovett version. Compare and contrast with the bass acting in the lead role. It’s good that way too.
