If You Have Ghosts

This is a great cover of a great Roky Erickson tune. It's done by John Wesley Harding and the Good Liars. I love it because it retains it's spooky feel and adds some doo wop backing vocals to make a really pop tune out of something that was originally close to metal. Both versions sound great but I figured since I already posted a Roky Erickson original I'd hit up this swell cover. If you like it, it can be found on the cd Where the Pyramid Meets the Eye. A Album of Roky Erickson covers by electic bands like R.E.M., Primal Scream, and the Butthole Surfers.
