Bonnie “Prince” Billy & The Cairo Gang – “Play, Guitar, Play”
Will Oldham has a new album The Wonder Show Of The World forthcoming in March under the Bonnie “Prince” Billy & The Cairo Gang moniker (there they are above). His U.S. label Drag City just posted the stripped-down, atmospherically rich “Play, Guitar, Play,” which they list as a “non-LP” track. Something they don’t mention is that it’s a moodier take on Conway Twitty’s original. Fittingly, outside the weirdo laugh loop at the end, it’s just the man and his guitar.
