Version City #52 - Mark Lanegan sings Pink Floyd
Mark Lanegan has excellent taste and knows his way around a cover version. If you don't believe me, check out his masterful reading of Gene Clark's 'Some Misunderstanding', which appeared in this very series a couple of years ago (here). Today's tune is a 2010 field recording of a haunting interpretation of Pink Floyd's 'Julia Dream', written by Roger Waters and originally tucked away on the b-side of their first post-Syd single, 'It Would Be So Nice', in 1968. 'Julia Dream' was the first Floyd song to feature a young David Gilmour on lead vocals.
