Ode to Billy Joe  performed by  Ronnie Aldrich  (1968)
From: UK
Mood: groovy, sparkling
Recommended by delicado [profile] on Saturday 2nd February 2002

A near-perfect take on this classic song. Ronnie dispenses with vocals, instead building a beautiful mood with some great strings, a relentless beat and percussive guitar. The bluesey melody is carried delicately by the piano. I'm not really getting it across here, but the track is astounding - astonishingly addictive and well recorded, building wonderfully to a warm and incredibly groovy climax.

from For Lovers Only (London/Phase 4)

Other Versions: This is by far the most interesting recording of this song I've ever heard.
