In My Time Of Dying  
How could I not have known that the title of that Supernatural episode was taken from a Led Zeppelin song? I need to hand over my "crotchety old-time heavy-metal" certificate. :(

I'm home painting, and I put 'Physical Graffiti' on, which I rarely listen to. Today, it was for Kashmir on Side 1. And then, three songs in... these guitar licks start up that make me want to lay my soul by the side of the road.

That guitar style is why I keep buying Ry Cooder albums, only to find out that they're more Country than Steel-Pedal Blues (which owns me as a sound).

Still not paying attention to the lyrics, which are immaterial compared to that insinuating, melancholy refrain...

Just to wiki you further (shut up, it's totally a verb ;p), http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_My_Time_of_Dying is a traditional folk/blues song, and there are other version of it. I posted a d/l of Bob Dylan's version of the song last night, if you like Dylan. It's from his first album.

Wow-- I saw your post about the Bob Dylan song just today, and of course I wondered if it was a different song altogether.

I don't like Bob Dylan at all as a performer, and it tends to make me forget his abilities as a songwriter. I'll download it and listen though, just out of curiosity about what his cover would sound like! :)
