I came late to Richmond Fontaine – but Jeez they’re good. When my brother gave me ‘The High Country’ for my birthday one year, I was sceptical. I had liked all their records until that point, but concept records are hard to make work.
This one certainly does – I bloody love it.
Particularly this song. This performance would have to be one of my favourite Warner Corners of all time (that’s saying a lot, the show’s been going more than 15 years!).
Jane Hendry (Broads/The Tiger & Me) sings the haunting answering verse. Just makes you want to grab her hand and keep running…
