Cat Power & Jakob Dylan – “You Showed Me” (The Turtles Cover)
Southern California folk rock is getting its own tribute show this fall. Artists like Cat Power, Fiona Apple, Beck, Regina Spektor, Jade (formerly of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros), and Jakob Dylan will cover songs by artists like the Beach Boys, the Byrds, the Mamas & the Papas, the Turtles, the Association, Buffalo Springfield, and more. This year marks the 50th anniversary of that scene’s blossoming, as measured from the release date of the Byrds’ debut album, Mr. Tambourine Man.
The Echo In The Canyon tribute show will take place on 10/12 to honor the movement, and a full-length studio album will follow. In advance of that full record, today we get a cover of the Turtles “You Showed Me” by Cat Power and Jakob Dylan. The new version keeps the soft, silky rhythm of the original. Listen below.
Pre-sale tickets to the 10/12 show go on sale here at 10 AM on 10/2.
