At the dark end

Cat Power's second cover album Jukebox releases 1/22. Stereogum's evaluation is mixed, but I'll still get it because her voice makes my speakers purr. Butter.

I am disappointed, though, that she chose not to include her cover of "Dark End of the Street" on the final tracklist. I heard her sing it for the first time at her concert in Hollywood last year, and it had me swaying with joy. If someone has a bootleg of her cover of that song, I'll trade you something really nice for it. In the meanwhile, we'll have to settle for this brief YouTube clip of a chunk of that song, from a studio session.
