Default Alisson Krauss Shadows

I found this being displayed by another Lightfoot fan on his Facebook page and thought it was an absolutely beautiful version that all Lightheads should see.
It reminded me of Melissa Joe of this parish too
Alison has another Lightfoot cover on YouTube-of "Sixteen Miles" too

Here is a screenshot from the first link you provided (the relevent video in the second has been nobbled by YouTube.)
The whole video you quote is to my old eyes, even wearing my glasses, exceedingly blurry

Whereas a screenshot from the video I liked and displayed is to me far far clearer and is exceptionally clear



both screenshots are "stored" on my facebook page for free to save uploading to a site such as Photobucket whch may well not last as long as Facebook!!

Whilst on the subject of Alison Krauss
One of my absolute favourite films is "Notting Hill" starring the versatile Hugh Grant and the vitally attractive Julia Roberts
During the film are a series of rather touching scenes whose background music a very nice cover of Alison's earlier hit
"W
hen you say nothing at all"
sung by the one time lead singer of the Irish "boy" band Boyzone.Ronan Keating. his official video of his subsequent hit with this song was set on the same London garden seat used in the film
I think I might like his rendition of this great song even more than Alison's

probably a few prior discussions can be revived from over the past several years about this cover ... i think the original tempo is something that should be preserved regardless of folk's who are making it their own... i'm a big AKUS fan.... she's covered a few... this too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7i0jekMPVVI
