John and i usually meet at the local pub. That night, Anna came in with her accordion. We started playin some irish tunes..here's the result...

"A Pair Of Brown Eyes" has been written by Shane McGowan and is featured on The Pogues "Rum, Sodomy & The Lash" back in 1985.

I'm so happy and proud to have Anna and John on this track...cant say how much...

Anna Veronese - Accordion
John G Kane - Vocals
Me on vocals and music...no loops

You are lucky to have Anna and John in your music, Dyl. The same kind of souls trends to gather.

Ah... local pub... what better place is there? All I have is the East side dive bar, and while I've had some good times there (haha)... it was in spite of the place, not because of it!

This is great, thank you for posting it! I love it... it makes me happy, in many ways.

I am always very careful when it comes to rating a Pogues song because there is nobody out there who sings those songs with such a pain in his voice (and he was actually sober during the recordings)..

Well it's a good cover I'll give you that (John sounds more like Bono than Shane)... at least I can picture Bono now singing McGowan's songs... smiley

I loved that Pogues album but it's been so long since I heard it I can't remember this song in particular, so this comes off as an original to me in that respect. Great insta-band you guys put together for this. really fine vocal commitment, especially ripping into the chorus. Everything fits great, as I'd expect of Dylan productions. Great playing by all, though.

Thank you all...

ckrohm, i understand what you mean...the idea is not miming...just celebrating the genius of this man (and by the way...we were sober too during the recording..at least i was...hehehe)

And..just a short personal story...I met a great singer-songwriter, many years ago, called Peter Case (Nerves, Plimsouls...). We talked about irish music, Nic Jones...and he played "A Pair Of Brown Eyes" just for me, backstage. It's been one of the most beautiful music moments of my life. Ever wanted to make a version since then...

And...yes...what Anna is doing here is...pfffff..beyond me.

This sounds like something they would do up here in New Foundland.....
But I guess this would fit in any maritime setting, coastal pubs and
sailer towns......

Very good job though on this track.........

great version of a great song. the accordion is particularly fine. it's hard to sing a pogues song without mimicking shane's heavy accent but your high harmony gave it a different sound. thanks for your comments about "wolf". I see from your bio that you like a lot of the (pro) artists that I do. must check out your version of different finger. i've recorded some covers of some of those artists' songs, including a rootsy version of oliver's army. i'll post them soon.
