THE BALLAD OF BUSTER SCRUGGS
THE SONG -- "SURLY JOE"
Performed live with Tim Blake Nelson (standing three feet away from me in the studio), who nailed it admirably. Two, maybe three takes. I knocked it out on T-Bone's vintage spinet piano, which is old enough to qualify as having an authentic "bar room" sound. And that's the right sound for this track!
The film is pretty awesome--one of my top favorites by the Coen Brothers.
