Under the Covers With Holly Dagger: Talking Heads
“Take Me to the River” was originally written by Al Green and Mabon Hodges in 1974. ‘Take Me to the River’ helped launch The Talking Heads career in 1976. Although this tune has been covered by many artists, The Talking Heads version is by far my favorite. Which is your favorite and why?
