all things must pass

i've had mixed feelings about the work of my morning jacket but jim james' voice isn't a part of them. when he appeared in the dylan quasi-bio, i'm not there, w/calexio singing one of the great basement tapes songs, "going to acapulco," i sat right up in my theater seat. their version was very nearly sublime &, in the context of the movie, chilling.

i'm not sure where i ran across james' alter-ego, yim yames, doing his tribute to george harrison but i am sure there's not a dud among these covers. again, his voice is front & center & just as spell-binding as when he covered dylan.
