Let the Mystery Be

It was the piratical Zach Works who introduced me to Iris DeMent.

Well, not personally: Zach was performing noble QA in India - doing overtimer for the same pay - and I was mooching around our office in PacMed and saw this CD and decided to borrow it.

Of course, I ripped after hearing the first track.

I loved the Mystery Being track and even tried to learn it for my own strummings at Seabold but my voice wasn't right.

Now I come across an equally catchy version by David Byrnes:

  • Iris

  • Byrnes and the 10,000 Maniacs.
