19 May 2021 - Marti Jones - Cliché / Don Dixon - Cliché

Let's be clear.  The Marti Jones version, released in 1988, is absolutely a cover of Don Dixon's version.   I am OPENLY posting a cover here, and not on Totally Covered.
However, Marti Jones brought a feel to her husband's song that was simply transcendent.  It is a desperate, haunting song that I cannot get enough of, to this day.  Also, this version adds a bridge, which absolutely adds to the mysterious appeal of this simple folk song.  

Of course, this doesn't mean the Don Dixon version sucks.  It's amazing.   Here it is.   It is a much simpler song in its arrangement - which is why it doesn't get top billing on this post.
