A different version

Everybody knows Ray Charles’s version of this song. Here’s Becky Kilgore’s and Dave Frishberg’s cover, from their “Not a Care in the World” album.

I think I first heard these two together on Fresh Air about fifteen years ago, and it was a revelation to hear her sing and hear Frishberg (who wrote “I’m Just a Bill” for Schoolhouse Rock a long time ago) play. I’ve been hunting up albums by the two of them ever since, and there aren’t many. Here’s a list of Kilgore’s records, and here’s a list of Frishberg’s discography. These two are old-timers: Frishberg is 84 years old and Becky is 67.
