Do Ra Mi Fargo

September 5, 2016



Most people think of the Coen Brothers’ movie when they think of Fargo, Dakota’s largest city. But there are many who were born or lived in that Red River of the North city… Bobby Vee, Roger Maris, Frank Scott and Chris Coste. And my personal favourite of the many folks living for that city is 1981’s Jonny Lang.

You can’t do justice to the original when you cover a Stevie Wonder song. But if you make the attempt, it better have some guts and gloriously innovative aspect rolling out of it. This one does (he starts to really wind this thing up about 2:30 into it);
