Vinyl 7" £6.99 TMR044
7" on Third Man.
Was anyone else as upset as I was that Laura Marling has gone back from brunette to blonde? I mean life goes on etc. but she looked better as a brown hair. I'll get over it, I suppose. Now she has teamed up with Jack White for a new single on his label Third Man. The lead track 'Blues Run the Game' is very familiar. I think Nick Drake may have covered it and the guitar picking certainly recalls the minstrel at his finest. B side is a take on Neil Young's 'Needle and the Damage Done' a song covered to death already- I'd like to have heard her do something less familiar. This literally could be anyone performing this at any bar or coffeehouse anywhere. Still, its a good song and she's a good singer so everything's good.
