there was once a woman named cleo lane from the uk , she must have heard her , i love cassandra wilson have done for years

JohnFive Eagles Szuros says:

I love  this song. I came back to listening to this album as it was my second Wilson album after Drums Again and it blew me away. I wrote a song the other day and it sounded like the same kind of chords in the same kind of signature and fret placements. not entirely but similar and I  didn't realize I was internally resonant with this song until I remembered it this morning. I am in a lot of pain these days and I hide in music as I  can disassociate from the pain for a little while. I t is a miracle that i am playing drums again and writing and composing but darn I hurt some days like today and your music Cas made me feel a lot better. Thank you.

Stunning heart ache music.

David Fahey says:

How can Jack White ever produce the sensuality that Cassandra does?

Paweł Nasiorowski says:

i like the trumpet

Xinperor says:

Jack White version is far much better

Mz Nurú says:

You have to have an elite sense of musical intelligence to enjoy a voice like hers or Nina Simone’s. When people say she sounds like a man it just shows how immature they are.

Mz Nurú says:

Love love this song…

Martina Bacarella says:

I think I prefer Cassandra Wilson's version!

Phospher says:
