    Townes VZ’s “Tecumseh” builds the story to verse 6, when we hear “she turned to whorin'” and it hits like a punch in the gut. The whole song turns on that line. These guys change it to “she took to walkin'” WTF? Doesn’t even make sense. How can you dedicate a whole album to his songs (much less the name of your group) and then mutilate the central premise of one of Townes most hard-hitting songs? This level of poetic insensitivity and misplaced political/religious(?) “correctness” really gives lie to the whole premise of the group’s self-alignment with an artist like TVZ. Do you understand anything he was trying to say? Just be warned, if you dl. (Sorry for the rant, but couldn’t help it)

    I agree a 100% with G. Lewes! What’s the point?

    “She took to walkin'” is the line from the original version Van Zandt wrote, that appears on “For the sake of the song” (1968).
